1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound hot Italian sausage, casings removed
1 onion, chopped
1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook beef, sausage, and onion, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
