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.
prep time20 Min
cook time3 Hr
good quality hamburger
chopped onion (1 onion)
can of diced tomatoes
(15 ounce) tomato sauce
handfull dried oregano
handfull dried parsley
handfull dried basil
dried thyme, crushed
dry red wine (beer is good too)
tomato paste (the smallest size can)
pasta of your choice, we like angel hair
parmesan cheese as garnish
How To Make
In a Dutch oven, oven medium heat cook hamburger, onion, and garlic, until meat is brown and onion is transparent. Drain fat.
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.
