Why I Love This Recipe

One of my grandmother's recipes that I've tweaked. She uses 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, but I don't use it every time.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 14-ounce can tomatoes
2 6-ounce cans tomato paste
2 tablespoons snipped parsley
1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1 bay leaf


Cook beef, onion, and garlic until meat is browned and onion is tender.

Drain fat and add remaining ingredients.

Bring to boiling and cook for about 5 minutes.

Simmer, covered while spaghetti noodles cook.

Remove bay leaf and serve over spaghetti.
