    3      cup           Water
    2                    Onions -- chpd
    2      cup           Dry red wine OR water
    8      Cloves        garlic -- minced
    6      ounce         Tomato paste
    1 1/2  pound         Boneless chuck -- cut 1 cubes
    2      tablespoon    Fresh basil -- chpd
    1      pound         Italian sausage -- sliced 1/2
    1      pound         Cooked rigatoni
    6                    Beef short ribs
                         Parmesan cheese
    1 1/2  cup           Marinara sauce
 
 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. 1.00
