Being I come from an old school Italian family, I NEVER thought I'd use and LOVE a recipe for meat sauce that i found online. The seasoning is perfect, no reason to alter it. This was the second time I made it. The first time I added 1 1/2 lbs of chopped meat and followed the recipe exactly except for not adding the peppers. It was delicious, but not wet enough. This time, I added a little over a lb. of chopped meat AND 4 sausage patties crumbled up while I was browning them. I used two 28 oz. cans of crushed tomatoes, one 14 oz can of chopped tomatoes and one can of tomato paste. I added about 1/3 cup of grated cheese, and was heavy handed on the spices. Served it over 1 lb of pasta with a dollop of ricotta and extra grated cheeseon each plate. I would suggest saving pasta water when draining it ( I stopped pouring out the pasta and left about 1" of pasta that wasn't drained at the bottom of the pot). That made it wet enough. I might add a little wine to it next time when cooking, but it's not totally necessary. Its so good, my family was eating the sauce alone with buttered bread! Enjoy!
