May 24 - Spaghetti with meat sauce

We're back, but almost completely without food?! I dug around in the freezer for a little yesterday and uncovered a frozen bag of the spaghetti meat sauce I made a few weeks pasta it was! The cupboards are so barren I didn't even have anything to serve with it. With Luke's birthday tomorrow, I know I won't get to the store until at least Wednesday. Sounds like it's pizza for Tuesday!

Spaghetti Tomato/Meat Sauce
1 (28 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 pound lean ground beef
2 yellow onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Blend the stewed tomatoes and crushed tomatoes in a blender.
  2. In a large pot, brown the ground beef with the onions and garlic. 
  3. Pour in tomatoes, and reduce heat. 
  4. Add sugar, basil, oregano, salt and pepper, and cover. 
  5. Simmer about 45 minutes. Serve warm over pasta of your choice.
