How to make it
- Sauce: Brown sausage, ground beef in olive oil until almost done, add onions and garlic and finish browning.
- Add puree, paste, sauce, salt, pepper, crushed chile, bay leaves, Italian spices, sugar (to blend flavors) and wine.
- Let simmer for approx 2 hrs - add a little water to keep from thickening too much while simmering.
- Cook noodles according to package instructions. When cooked place in a pan with cool water so they don't stick together.
- Preheat oven to 375F
- Spray 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan and start layering: first layer sauce, then noodles, then sauce again, then spoon dollups of ricotta evenly, then sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Continue layers (usually 2 -3) in this way and end with sauce and parmesan on top.
- Cover with foil and bake for 1/2 hour. Uncover and continue baking for 15 minutes.
- Serve with green salad and vinagrette dressing and crusty garlic bread. Delicioso!
