“You can’t win an argument. You can’t because if you lose it, you lose it; and if you win it, you lose it.” –Dale Carnegie


I got this recipe from my friend Julee.

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed (or use minced garlic in a jar = to 1 clove)
  • 1 cans (15 oz each) tomato sauce
  • 2 cans (12 oz each) tomato paste
  • 1-2 cans diced tomatoes with garlic and basil
  • 2 envelopes Italian-style spaghetti sauce mix with mushroom (McCormick brand)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil leaves

Cook meat, onion and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Mix well.  Cover and simmer for a few hours on low.   Make sure it doesn’t burn on the bottom.
