  1. In large, skillet, add the garlic and chopped onions and saute until the onions are softened and little bit golden. Next brown the Italian sausage and ground beef , breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon as you stir. You can make your meat in as big or as little chunks as you’d like. Drain excess fat.
  2. Place ground meat mixture into a slow cooker. Add all the cans of tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, water, wine, brown sugar, coffee grounds, parsley, basil, salt, crushed red pepper, and pepper, to taste.
  3. Cover and cook on high heat for 4-6 hours or low for 6-10 hours.
  4. 30 minutes before sauce is ready, cook pasta. Feel free to cook only 1 lb of pasta and freeze the rest.
