Hey All- I'm sorry that I did not get to blog yesterday. I have been very busy and it has been hard to make time for my blog. Especially with school and Easter just around the corner. My family and I have lots of menu planning and cooking to do. So I am sorry to all my fellow bloggers that I am late with my letter L. I'm swamped this week! Please forgive me. Today I'm back with the letter M. M is for my meat sauce.
This meat sauce is great for everything. My family uses it in everything from our lasagna to just dipping a nice slice of Italian bread in it. Here's the recipe!
1 pound ground beef
3 cans tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 can diced tomato
1 can puree
1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning (to taste)
1 tsp of oregano, basil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder and one bay leaf
1 yellow onion diced
3 cloves of garlic diced
1 tsp of extra-virgin olive oil
Saute the onion and garlic first, then leave it in pan. Brown the chop meat in same pan, drain the grease. Meanwhile, place all other ingredients in large pot on the stove and simmer. As soon as the meat mixture is drained, add it to the sauce. Simmer for at least an hour. Enjoy!
