Super Simple Easy Yummy Hearty Spaghetti & Meat Sauce Recipe


1/2 cup onion, chopped (optional, if you don't like' em, don't add' em!)
1 pound lean ground beef (or wild meat) (optional if your a vegetarian)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 big cans of tomatoes (19 oz each)
1 cup water
1 can tomato sauce (small fat can)
1 cup mushrooms, cleaned, sliced
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon basil (or a couple leaves if you grow the stuff fresh)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or chop up a clove and throw that in)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
(whatever else you feel like throwing in, so right ahead!)


Cook the onions and beef in a frying pan until brown.
At the same time, in a nice big pot, put in all your ingredients (except the mushrooms. Put those in at the same time as the beef so as not to over cook them)
Add your cans of tomatoes (or actual tomatoes if you're that hard core) and when you pour in your tomatoes, sauce and paste, wash out the can with half a can of water, each, to make sure all the juices are out. If you want this sauce thicker, skip the water and just clean them out good with a rubber spatula.
Cook pasta sauce on medium heat while the meat is cooking.
Once the meat and onions are done, add them to the sauce and cook for a while longer.
Usually is done within a half hour or longer. Depends on when you think its done!
Add to spaghetti or other noodles and enjoy with asiago & mozza cheese!!
