2 pounds of ground beef, browned and drained
8 ounces of fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 large onion, chopped
2 chopped bell peppers
2 28 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
6 ounce can of tomato paste
1 cup of water
2 packages of McCormick brand Thick and Zesty Spaghetti Sauce Mix
In a large sauce pain, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the chopped onion, peppers, and the sliced mushrooms. Saute over medium heat. While the onions and mushrooms are cooking, I start the meat. Just brown and scramble, salt and pepper to taste, and drain the oil.
Once the onions are clear, add one cup of water, the caned tomatoes (with juice), tomato paste, and sauce mix. Add the drained meat. Stir well, cover and let simmer. It really is better the longer it simmers. We let our cook at least one and half hours.
Serve over pasta.
