Esther's Spaghetti Sauce

Esther's Spaghetti Sauce

1 pound ground beef
onion
2 16 oz. cans Hunts tomato sauce
1 small tomato paste
1 can whole tomatoes (with their juice)
oregano
basil
bay leaves
salt and pepper
sugar
water

Finely chop some onion. Add onion to ground beef and cook. Salt and pepper the beef.
Spoon off extra grease. Add sauce, paste and whole tomatoes. Add 1 cup of water especially if you plan on letting this simmer for many hours.
Sprinkle oregano and basil over the top of the sauce. Probably less than a tablespoon each. Add two bay leaves, @ a teaspoon of salt, 1/4 t. pepper and a tablespoon of sugar. (This cuts the acid)

Cook for about two to three hours.

We usually had spaghetti noodles and they are my husbands favorite. I am fond of mostacolli. Don't ask me why. No reason :o)

This is a very good recipe Donna.
I love the practicallity of using tinned tomato as opposed to fresh ones.
Keep cooking ;)
