Submitted by Holly Chichester

Cook in a Dutch oven until onions are transparent:
1 large onion
1Tablespoon minced garlic or generous sprinkling of garlic powder
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 or 2 cut up Portobello mushrooms (optional)
1 Teaspoon rosemary (optional)
1 Tablespoon basil (optional)

Add 1 to 2 pounds Princess ground beef broken up into about 1 inch or less chunks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is slightly browned.

Add 2 large cans Muir Glen tomatoes: crushed, diced, or tomato puree or 1 large can tomatoes and 1 small can tomato paste + 1 can water. Season with ground pepper. Simmer uncovered about 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Salt to taste after simmering.

Optional: During last half hour add up to 1 cup red wine and/or diced fresh tomatoes.

Note: Sauces like this are best refrigerated overnight and used the second day. Also, the flavor can be varied considerably by using different herbs and adding mushrooms, olives, wine, fresh tomatoes or other enhancements.

Use for spaghetti, on macaroni, for lasagna or pizza. Yoghurt or freshly grated cheese may be served on the side.

Freeze in one cup containers for quick meals.
