  • olive oil.
  • Add the garlic and onion, and cook until translucent.
  • Remove 2/3 of the garlic and onion from the pan, and set aside.
  • Begin removing the skins of the sausage, and crumbling the meat within.
  • Add the sausage and ground meat to the pan, with the remaining garlic and onion.
  • After the fat has started to render, mix in your dried oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, and 1 tbs.
  • powdered garlic.
  • Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Stirring occasionally, and breaking up all the meat, cook over medium high heat until all the meat is browned.
  • Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the set aside onion and garlic to the pan.
  • Add in the whole peeled plum tomatoes, breaking them up with your hands or wooden spoon.
  • Bring to a simmer, and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
  • Taste, and make sure the flavors have come together.
  • Add additional seasonings, if you like.
  • Pour out half the tomato sauce, and set aside.

  • Next time, I might add a third layer for more flavor.
  • Spread your meat and sauce mix over the dock layer.
  • Cover with a second double layer of curly dock leaves.
  • Pour a thick layer of the reserved tomato sauce across the dock.
