  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F (200˚C).
  2. Add the crushed tomatoes, butter, onion, and salt to a pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Lower the heat and cook for 45 minutes, until the onions are soft and starting to break apart. Remove onion.
  4. In a bowl, mix the ground beef, ground pork, panko, Parmesan, egg, garlic, onion, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, and parsley until fully combined.
