Instructions

Stove Top Version

  1. Heat the olive oil in a 5- or 6-quart Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high. Add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent, 2 minutes. Add the beef and sausage and cook until brown, 4 to 5 minutes.

  5. Divide among bowls and garnish with the parsley before serving.

Slow Cooker Version

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the tablespoon olive oil and the ground beef and sausage along with the garlic and onion. Cook until the meat is browned and onion is translucent, 2 minutes.
  2. Transfer to the slow cooker and add the broth, canned tomatoes (with liquid), tomato sauce, water, peppers, tomato paste, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
