Super Simple Spaghetti

This recipe from my mother is remarkably similar to her Sloppy Joe recipe, which we’ve also posted.  Clever of her.

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 (28 oz) box or can of crushed tomatoes (I don’t put quite the whole can in – but that’s a matter of taste)
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • grated parmesan cheese (optional but delicious)
  • cooked thin spaghetti noodles

Combine ground beef, onion, garlic, and green pepper in a large saucepan. Cook and stir until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain grease.

Stir tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, sugar, salt, and pepper into the ground beef mixture.  Simmer this sauce for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Serve on top of the noodles with the parmesan, if desired.

The sauce will freeze beautifully.  Recipe brought to you by and Andy and Ann.
