This is my Mom's recipe that has changed very little over the years. We never used precise measurements - a hand full of this, a pinch of that - so it's never exactly the same way twice.

Ingredients

1 lb
good quality hamburger
1 c

2 clove
garlic, minced
28 oz
can of diced tomatoes
4 can(s)
(15 ounce) tomato sauce

1 pinch

1 can(s)
tomato paste (the smallest size can)
pasta of your choice, we like angel hair
parmesan cheese as garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a Dutch oven, oven medium heat cook hamburger, onion, and garlic, until meat is brown and onion is transparent. Drain fat.
2
Add cans of tomatoes and sauce. Stir in oregano, parsley, basil, bay leaf, thyme, sugar and wine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 2-3 hours, uncovered, stirring occasionally.

In the last hour add the tomato paste, it will act as a thickener. When it's boiled down serve over warm pasta. Garnish with parmesan, and pass the garlic bread.
