Spaghetti Sauce

Spaghetti Sauce - original recipe from here

ground beef

onion, chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 large (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
2 small cans tomato paste
2 15 oz (398 ml) cans tomato sauce
1-2 cups water (start with one cup and add more if needed during simmering)
3 tsp basil
2 tsp parsley
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red chili peppers
1/4 cup red wine (optional, but it really enhances the flavour)

Directions: In a large pot, brown ground beef with onions. Drain off fat. Add garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and water. Add red wine, basil, parsley, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, and crushed chili peppers. Stir well and bring just to a boil. Turn down and simmer for at least an hour, stirring occasionally. Add more water during simmering if needed.

Note: I often use this same recipe for lasagna
