Uncle Mark's Pasta Sauce AKA Duck Sauce

Yes, my uncles are cooks. Mark and his wife invented this sauce while on vacation in the mountains and call it "Duck Sauce," but I cannot remember the significance. It contains no ducks. As I recall, it is very flavorful and makes a ton so is good for family gatherings. I haven't had it in ages but just came across the recipes whilst reorganizing my cookbooks and recipes. I have never made it, but remember eating it at their house with pleasure - especially since the uncles are generous with their wine.

Olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 lb Italian sausage
1 quart Classico sauce
1 cup ketchup
2 jars sliced mushrooms, drained
1 or 2 diced tomatoes
1/2 bottle red wine
2 Tbs dried basil

Heat olive oil in very large pot. Add garlic and saute for just a minute or two - do not allow to brown. Add meats and brown thoroughly; no pink should remain. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 40 minutes to an hour to blend flavors.
