In a large pan, saute onions and garlic in oil until tender. Remove and set aside. Add chuck to pan, brown on all sides, then remove to onion dish. Add sausage and brown, Return all to pan. Add ribs, mainara sauce, water or wine, tomato paste and spices and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover partially, simmer 3 hrs. or until chuck is very tender, degreasing occasionally. Just before serving, stir in basil. Divide pasta among 6 bowls and top with meat mixture then cheese.
This is absolutely excellent. I made my spaghetti sauce in place of marinara sauce. Next time, change the ribs and beef and substitute round steak. The wine makes it! Converted by MMCONV vers.
