Used 1/2 pound ground beef and 1/2 pound ground breakfast bulk sausage. Almost 1 cup of chopped onion and I cooked it until a little brown in a non-stick pan before adding it to the ground meat. Also cooked the garlic with the onion for just a minute or two before adding to meat. Used 1 whole garlic head (One clove! That is a joke right?) Used 28 oz. jar of crushed tomatoes and also a jar of my homemade Italian Sauce. So I recommend more sauce than the recipe calls for for sure!
