Spahetti Sauce

This recipe is adapted from a couple of different places, my niece Elizabeth Wolfe, fixes something similar to this and an old friend of mine from IBM early years, had a mother who used to make the best sauce. She was Italian and I truly never had a better sauce, I compared the recipes and added and deleted from both and I think came up with a wonderful hybrid sauce. But credit should go to both the Simones and Wolfes.

Directions
1.
Melt the butter in a large heavy sauté pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. When oil and butter are hot, add the onion and garlic and sauté until translucent. Add the carrots and cook gently for 3 number of minutes). Turn the heat down to medium, add the milk and the nutmeg, and cook until milk absorbs. Add the ground beef and sausage, crumbling it in the pan with a fork. Add salt, stir, and cook only until the meat has lost its raw, red color. Drain the fat off of the meat at this point and return it to a very large pot. Add the wine, turn the heat up to medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, until all the wine has evaporated. Now do the tomatoes by placing them in a blender or Cuisinart to blend into a sauce, add the tomato paste and cook for several hours on low heat.
