Spaghetti Meat Sauce

I'm always looking to try new recipes that Joe will eat, and he approved of this sauce :-) It was yummy, but honestly, just as good as some of the pre-made canned sauces.

Recipe from Pennies On A Platter

Yield: About 10 servings

1 lb sweet Italian sausage
3/4 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup minced onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped - 2 tablespoon dried
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp dried
dash of nutmeg

In a Dutch oven, heat the sausage, ground beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until the meat is cooked through. Drain any excess grease, if necessary. Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce and water and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Simmer, covered, for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
