Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 carrot, chopped fine
1 celery stalk, chopped fine
˝ lb. ground beef round
˝ lb. ground pork
1 C. milk
2-3 shakes of ground nutmeg
1 C. dry white wine (I always use wine that is drinkable in this recipe- better wine, better flavor)
1 28-32 oz. can of whole tomatoes including juice
1 box of whole wheat pasta (I usually use spaghetti or penne)
Salt and pepper

Hint: instead of buying ˝ lb. of ground beef and ˝ lb. of ground pork, just buy a package of meatloaf mix in the ground meat section- the grocery store usually always has this pre-packaged and the quantities work just fine even though they’re not exact.

Directions:
Directions:
In a large heavy duty sauce pan, heat the oil and butter over medium high heat until foam subsides- then add onion, carrot, and celery to sautee them, stirring occasionally for a few minutes.

Add the beef and pork, stirring for a few minutes more until the meat is cooked. Season with a few shakes of salt and pepper. Add the milk and nutmeg to the meat mixture and cook, while stirring, until most of the milk is evaporated, about 10 minutes.

Once the milk is mostly evaporated, add the wine and continue to cook, stirring occasionally for another 10 minutes. While that’s cooking, put the can of tomatoes in a blender or food processor and puree. Stir this into the sauce.

Cook sauce on a low simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The sauce will thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with pasta

Personal Notes:
This has tons of flavor, but not the spice. This is not a super quick recipe to make and requires the use of a blender, so save this one for when you’ve got a little time on your hands. You’ll be happy you tried it. You can always freeze the leftovers individually so when you do need a quick meal, all you have to do is make some pasta and defrost the sauce.
