Ingredients:

Directions:
Directions:
Cut the ribs and brown them in olive oil. Do the same with the sausage.
Mix the meatballs: ground beef, eggs, chopped garlic and curly parsley, wet bread broken in pieces and cheese.
Roll them into balls. Fry one meatball. Taste it and adjust the spices if you like. After frying, set them aside.

In a large stock pot cover the bottom with olive oil. Add cup chopped garlic and cup chopped Italian parsley (to your taste) to the olive oil. Heat them up together stirring until the oil becomes fragrant. You may need to add a little more olive oil if it needs it. Now add all the meat and the cans of tomatoes. I usually add a half of cup of water. Stir and cook on low heat. Needs to cook for 2-3 hours.

I do my sauce in the crock pot so I don't have to stir and worry about burning the gravy After you cook your herbs in the olive oil transfer it to the crockpot, add the meat and the tomatoe sauces, set the crockpot for 4 or 8 hours and live a little.

Another way to do the meatballs: Mix the ground beef, bread crumbs parsley and some raisins and egg. Do not fry them. Drop them into the sauce raw. They will be really yummy this way too. A little sweet with the raisins.
