    1. In a large stock pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add Italian sausage, steak chunks, sausage links, onion and garlic: cook and stir until meat is thoroughly done. Stir in tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, bay leaves and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer sauce over low heat for 1 hour.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the beef mince, eggs, bread, Romano cheese, salt and pepper and a pinch of parsley flakes. Shape into golf ball sized meatballs.
    3. Pour vegetable oil into a large frypan. Add meatballs and cook over medium heat until lightly browned. Place meatballs in spaghetti sauce and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
    4. Cook pasta in boiling, salted water until al dente. Drain well, and transfer to a large bowl. Stir 1 cup sauce into the pasta to help prevent sticking.
    5. Serve sauce with meatballs over pasta.
