Prep work and browning the meat!
Roughly dice the onion, and mince as much garlic as you want. I used quite a bit as you can see. :D
Once you've got the veggies prepped, film your sauce pan with olive oil. Heat the pan over medium and cook the ground beef and Italian sausage until browned. If a lot of fat seeps out, drain most of it. You need only a few tablespoons of fat to cook the onion and garlic in.
Once you've drained the extra fat, throw in the onions and garlic.
Stir this around for a few minutes over medium heat until the onions become soft. Then add in a few good pinches of Italian seasoning, a pinch of basil, oregano and salt, and a tablespoon or two of tomato paste.
