  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion , diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 pound (500 grams) ground lean beef
  • 12 ounces (350 grams) ground sausage
  • 21 ounces (600 grams) bottle tomato puree / sauce, or passata (or marinara sauce), divided
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons beef bouillon powder
  • Salt and pepper , to taste
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • Pinch of dried basil
  • 6-8 large tortilla wraps (white or while wheat)
  • 7 ounces (200 grams) fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • 2 tablespoons butter , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose or plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to broil or grill settings on medium heat. Lightly spray a baking sheet / tray with cooking oil spray; set aside.


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan or skillet. Sauté onions and garlic until translucent and fragrant over low-medium heat.
  • Add in the ground beef and sausage; fry until browned, while breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon.
  • Stir in 3/4 of the tomato puree. Add the tomato paste, bouillon powder, salt and pepper (to taste), and dried herbs. Bring to a simmer until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly (the sauce will be thicker than normal lasagne sauce to avoid wetting and ripping the tortillas).
  • While cooling, prepare white sauce (optional)


  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour; cook, quickly stirring for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Gradually add milk, starting with 1/4 cup, whisking constantly, until mixture is smooth. Return to a low heat and cook, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon, for about 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens and comes to a boil. (It should coat the back of a wooden spoon.) Remove from heat.


  • Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute until soft. Place two slices of mozzarella onto the tortilla; spread about 1/4 cup of meat on each tortilla, and top with 2 more slices of mozzarella. Fold over tortilla ends, and roll up. Pour remaining tomato puree/sauce over the top (about 2 tablespoons each burrito), spoon white sauce over the tomato sauce, and top with the shredded mozzarella. Place burritos on prepared baking sheet / tray; bake burritos until cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden. Serve immediately.
