Olda Fashioned Italian a Meata Sauca

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, sliced
3 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
3 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with juice
8 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
2 pounds sweet Italian sausage
2 pounds ground sirloin
4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
6 cups water
2 tablespoons dried oregano
3 tablespoons garlic powder
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup grated Romano cheese
salt and pepper to taste

In large pot heat olive oil over low heat. Add chopped onion and garlic. Saute 5 minutes. Add sausage and ground sirloin and brown until done. Drain off oil and add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, as well as remaining ingredients. Simmer approximately 4 hours. Serve over any pasta but it is especially good on Penne.

This sauce is also wonderful with lasagna as well as poured over stuffed peppers.
