Spaghetti With Meat Sauce

Typically, sauces in a jar that claim to have meat usually just have one or two small bits. You can remedy that by preparing your own meat sauce.

Spaghetti With Meat Sauce
Ingredients You Will Need:

1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 8-ounce cans tomato sauce

1/8 teaspoon ground oregano
1 cup dry red wine

Heat oil in Dutch oven. Cook and stir beef, onion and garlic in hot oil until beef is light brown; drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, mushrooms (with liquid), green pepper, parsley, salt, pepper, sugar, basil and oregano. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour. Stir in wine. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Uncover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes longer. While sauce is simmering, cook spaghetti as directed on package; drain, but do not rinse. Pour meat sauce over hot spaghetti. Serve with cheese.
