This recipe is good even if you don't have a dutch oven. I reduced the servings to 12, used a fry pan and did a bit of jugling with the ingrediants and it turned out fine. Plus, with my method it's a bit healthier. First I fried the onions and some green bell peppers together in olive oil, drained and set aside. In the same fry pan, I put in 1/2 tblsp of low salt butter and fried the sausage and some fresh mushrooms with 1/4 tsp minced garlic, drained and set aside. Then I fried up the ground beef with a dash of salt and then drained all the oild from it. I then wiped down the fry pan with an oil absorbant sheet. Instead of Italian seasoning, I used 1 tblsp of italian dressing as an oil base and added in cut fresh tomato instead of the canned. I added the ground beef, onions, and sausage mixtures together, seasoned them with pepper, parsley, sugar and some basil. After seasoning I added the can of tomato paste. Finally I added 1 tsp of corn startch to make it more sticky and less watery. Lastly I added 2 tblsp of paremesan cheese, mixed until blended and let simmer for 10 minutes. It was still a tiny bit watery in consistancy, but not soupy. I live in Japan, so I had to imrovise my technique. Hope this helps anyone else who lives in an area where not all ingrediants are available to you.
