Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground mild Italian sausage

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes in sauce, undrained
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 carton (15 ounces) whole-milk ricotta cheese

Directions
