Place 2 Cups of fresh tomatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with oil and salt.
Roast for 20 minutes or until soft and charred bits are appearing.
Remove the tomatoes and set aside.
Once cooled a little, blend the tomatoes in a blender to make a tomato sauce.
In a Dutch Oven , over medium high heat, add the butter and oil. Once melted, add the carrots, celery, and onion.
Saute, stirring occasionally until tender, about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Add the ground beef and sausage and use a meat chopper (it's only $6 and worth every penny) to ground up the meat as it's cooking.
Once the meat is cooked, drain any excess grease, then start adding all other ingredients (i.e. tomatoes, lemon zest and juice, and cream).
Stir to combine and simmer for 2-3 hours or up to an entire afternoon.
Remove the bay leaves and serve with fresh pasta and fresh parmesan cheese.
You can use whole milk instead of the milk and cream You can use real white wine, we just don't drink so we don't have that. ;)Can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
