15 pounds ground beef
3 cups chopped onion
1 teaspoon fennel seeds or 1/2 teaspoon anise

2 tablespoons crushed sweet basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

Season with 1 teaspoon fennel seeds or 1/2 teaspoon anise, 3 tablespoons crushed oregano, 2 tablespoons crushed sweet basil, 1 teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste (start with 1 teaspoon pepper and 2 teaspoons salt). Keep meat well crumbled as it cooks. Use medium heat and stir often, small amount of water may be added. Do not brown. When crumbly and when pink is gone, add spaghetti sauce. Mix well and set aside.

Beat eggs; add cottage or ricotta cheese and Parmesan cheese. Add salt, pepper and parsley flakes.
