With the holidays come and gone and just about the last of the leftovers gone too, its time for some good old fashioned Italian comfort food. This is my spin off of Mom Appel's family recipe. Now, I don't measure when I cook so I'll try to be as precise as possible. Its Italian, made with love so it will all work out just fine.
Mince 6 cloves of garlic, chop one-half of a sweet white onion, and about an eight of a cup of fresh parsley and add to the center of the meat mixture in pan on medium heat. Let sit for about 2 minutes, watching not to burn before mixing it into the meat. Once mixed add a teaspoon of salt, pepper, oregano, basil and dried tomato seasoning (Magi if you have it).
Add one 8oz can of Hunts tomato sauce, two 14.5oz cans of Italian diced tomatoes, and one 26oz can of Hunts pasta sauce, lower heat to a simmer and cook for about 2 hours. This makes the flavor come out.
Combine the following indigents for the cheese mixture of the dish. Two eggs, slightly beaten, 2 cups Ricotta cheese, and 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
