Spaghetti Sauce

1 pound ground beef (or you can use Italian sausage)
1 cup onions (chopped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (4oz) can mushrooms
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsps. Italian dried seasons
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried parsley
dash salt and pepper
In a large ( big enough for the sauce and meat) pan cook your ground beef until done. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Once the onions turn translucent add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, water, Italian dried seasons, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Cover.Turn it on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Then turn it down to low heat for about 2 hours. Covered. ( You can let a little steam out.So the lid is just off a little.) Stirring sauce occasionally. The sauce will have a thick consistency once done.
The Results:
This is my own recipe for spaghetti sauce and my family loves it. A good sauce is always nice to have. Serve with spaghetti noodles and top with parmesan cheese. Also if you want this sauce to take less time only use about a 1/2 cup or less of water. Letting this sauce simmer for 2 hours makes it sooo good though.:)
