Scratch Spaghetti Sauce
1 15 oz cans of Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1 28oz can Crushed Tomatoes
1 6oz can of Hunt's Tomato Paste (I like the Basil, Oregano one)
1 Cream of Mushroom Soup (I like Pacific brand)
1 small can of mushrooms (drained)
3lbs ground beef (cook using Quick Ground Beef recipe-Onion Onion & Seasoned Salt)
4 TBSP Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto
Combine all ingredients in stew pot and simmer on Low for at least 3 hours. Stir occasionally to mix and keep sauce from sticking to the bottom. Serve over noodles (or your favorite pasta), use as a filling for lasagna (or other pasta dish) or just spoon over garlic bread.
This recipe makes a good bit. It will keep in the fridge for about a week and it does freeze well too. I have doubled the recipe many times to put up in the freezer to pull out on busy nights.
