Tracy’s Famous Spaghetti


 “If we choose the wrong road, we choose the wrong destination.”  –-Elder Dallin H. Oaks

I got this recipe from Sara, who got it at a wedding shower.


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2-8oz. cans tomato sauce
  • 2-6oz. cans tomato paste
  • 2-8oz. cans filled with water
  • 2 Tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 2-3 Tablespoons sugar


Brown ground beef over medium high heat.  Drain any excess oil.  Add tomato sauce and paste and fill the 2 tomato sauce cans with water and add.  Stir to combine.  Add all the spices.  Stir.  Let sauce come to a slow bubble on medium heat, then turn heat down and let simmer.  Put a lid partially on pot and let simmer two hours.  (You can eat it before but it tastes better the longer it has to combine flavors.) Serve over your favorite noodles.
