This sauce is about tomatoes and sausage meat. Make sure you get the best you can.

10ozmild Italian sausage - removed from casing and crumbled
1large onion - finely diced
2 28ouncecans whole tomatoes - I really like genuine San Marzano tomatoes here
1tspsalt - more to taste
Heat olive oil in a pot large enough to hold all the ingredients.
Add the onion, veal, pork and sausage and cook, uncovered, until all the liquid from the meat has evaporated. This takes about 10-15 minutes. You are evaporating liquid. You will be left with a bit of fat in the pan. That's OK. You can't boil off fat. At least I can't...
Add the white wine and boil until almost dry, about 5 minutes.
Pass the tomatoes along with their juices through a food mill to remove seeds and membranes.
Add the pureed tomatoes and the salt.
Cover loosely and simmer 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Adjust salt to taste.
Pass the tomatoes through a food mill if you have one. If using passata substitute 2 25 oz bottles for the two cans of tomatoes.
