3 packages of  Ground Beef, Pork and Veal for meatloaf.  6 + pounds

1/2 cup of chopped Onions

1/2 tsp of  black pepper,  Salt, Garlic Powder

Tomato Puree: 

 Suzy Bell or Tutto Russo 6 – 28 oz  cans (large cans)
1 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup chopped Garlic
1 Medium chopped Onions
1/2 tsp of  black pepper,  1 TBS Salt, Garlic Powder and 2 Tbs sugar, 1/4 cup chopped Basil
2 Cups Water
2 cups finely chopped Celery
2 cups finely chopped Carrots
1 1/2 quarts of Heavy Cream
1 package of Frozen Sweet Green Peas or 2 cans
1 1/2 cup grated cheese

Prepare Meat

Mix in large bowl all meats.
Add in 1/2 cup chopped onions & 1 teaspoon of spices – Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder. Mix and make small round meatball shapes and then flatten them out like a burger. 
With a very small amount of Olive Oil (just to coat pan) Place flatten meats in frying pan. 1 layer only at a time. (it cooks faster this way and you have more control on turning them) 
Cook on medium to high heat to just to crisp the outside. Don’t worry about meat being raw, it will cook once in sauce. 
 Once 1 side is cooked crispy turn over and start chopping the meat into smaller pieces.  I like doing it this way so I have chunks for the sauce instead of minced meat.  
 Placed cooked meat in large bowl and finish all meat.
