It’s Recipe Monday on a Tuesday, and instead of my contribution with the recipe, it is from Heather Baker, the publisher here at AY Media Group.
I saw where she had whipped up something and posted it to social media, because “pics or it didn’t happen,” right? And this is good ole comfort food. A bowl of spaghetti.
She didn’t specify what kind of red wine she drank with it. (Editor’s note: Ms. Heather doesn’t drink wine. It’s one of those weird things about her.)
Ms. Heather’s Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb. ground beef
1 sweet onion, finely diced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped or minced
1 can (15 oz.) crushed tomatoes
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (14 ½ oz.) diced tomatoes with garlic, oregano, basil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons dried basil
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon sugar
Brown the ground beef with onions and garlic. Drain the fat. Add the remaining ingredients and let simmer for a couple of hours. Put a lid on it or it will make a mess all over the stove.
Heather suggests: “I boil thin spaghetti in pan and mix the sauce with noodles to get more flavor.” Serve with crispy bread and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
