½ lb of lean hamburger (If you like it meaty... add 1 lb lean hamburger)
3 T. olive oil
1 1 lb. jar (23.5 oz) jar of quality Spaghetti sauce ( I like Prego) it really is in there...
1 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 sm. onion
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1 c. fresh mushrooms
1 t. dried basil
½ t. dried dill weed
1 t dried oregano
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracked pepper
Use a 4 qt pot and brown the meat in bottom, while the meat is browning add the chopped onions and garlic.
As the meat finishes cooking add the spices to it and let simmer for about 5 min.’s
While your meat is simmering get your pot of water boiling for your spaghetti noodles
Add the spaghetti sauce, crushed tomatoes & mushrooms to the meat mixture and let simmer for on low heat for another 35-40 min.’s
Salt and pepper
Don’t forget to taste test…
Add your spaghetti to the boiling water and cook according to the package directions.
Drain spaghetti and let cool while your sauce finishes simmering, make sure you keep stirring it to avoid sticking and splattering.
I like to use a combination of fresh grated parmesan, asiago & mozzarella cheeses and top it off with some fresh chopped Italian leaf parsley
Serve with toasted garlic bread and a fresh green salad
Oh…and maybe a nice bottle of Cabernet too…for the adults of course!
