    Oregongal's Spaghetti Sauce

    Ingredients ~

    1 to 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
    1 package Italian sausage links (mild), usually comes in 5 to a pack
    1 large onion, roughly chopped
    2 generous tbls of jarred minced garlic...or you can use a whole bulb of fresh garlic, peeling and chopping it.

    2 large cans diced tomatoes
    1-2 16oz cans tomato sauce
    1 small can tomato paste
    1 packet Spaghetti sauce mix (find in the packets of sauces and like taco seasoning place)
    6 beef bouillon cubes
    Italian Seasoning
    Sugar
    Garlic Powder
    Sweet Basil (dried)
    Salt
    Pepper
    8 oz package fresh sliced mushrooms

    I start cooking about 10 am, no later than noon.
    In dutch oven size pan brown ground beef-drain
    Cook the links of sausage. I now do mine in the microwave. Be sure to pierce each one several times, or you'll have exploded sausage to clean out.
    Don't over cook. Slice each cooked link into coins and add to ground beef
    Add cans of tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste. Rinse inside of cans pouring the water into pan.
    Add 1/2 of the chopped onion and 1 spoon of minced garlic, packet of Spaghetti Sauce mix and all bouillon cubes.
    Stir well.
    Start cooking on med high heat.
    Now you add the seasonings. I use the palm of my hand, cupped to 'measure. I'll try to 'guesstimate'.
    About a Tbls sugar
    1/2 to 1 teas garlic powder
    Gently crush these last 2 as you toss them in,
    Teas Sweet Basil (dried)
    Tbls Italian Seasoning
    Stir well.
    As soon as sauce is barely bubbling, turn to simmer and cover.
    Cook, stirring occasionally and tasting too. You may want to add more (or different) seasonings
    About 1 1/2 - 2 hours before you want to eat, stir again, taste, adjust if need be
    Add second half of chopped onion, second spoon of minced garlic and the package of mushrooms.
    You can leave the cover off so it will thicken up a bit, if needed. If too thick, you can add water and keep cover partially parked on pan.
    Serve over pasta. I prefer Angel hair.

    This sauce is good for other things too...lasagna, pizza, eggplant.
    Freezes great and does taste better the next day.

    mine is very similar but I do not use the sausage and I use the spaghetti noodles vs angel hair.
    my posts are my opinion only
