In a Dutch oven heat olive oil and add the sausage uncut and brown on all sides. Then add cut pork tips, meat-side down, covering the bottom of the pot.
To the Dutch oven add the diced onions, sweating them until translucent. Add the minced or pressed garlic and sauté then add the tomato paste.
Once the tomato paste has darkened a bit add about half the water and mix. Add the spaghetti mix and stir then add the rest of the water and the dried herbs.
Cut each sausage link into 3-4 pieces. Then add them along with the pork back to the Dutch oven with the tomato paste mixture. Stir the sauce to evenly coat the sausage and pork then turn the heat to low and simmer.
