Hearty spaghetti sauce



  • - 2 lbs of ground beef
  • - 2 chopped onions
  • - 6 garlic cloves minced
  • - 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • - 2 cans sliced black olives (8oz)
  • - 2 packs of fresh sliced mushrooms
  • - 1 can tomato juice
  • - 3 cans (600ml) zesty pasta tomato sauce
  • - 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • - black pepper, herbes de provence, garlic salt.


This recipe can be adjusted to fit anyone's unique taste. This is my version.

- pour the olive oil in a medium frying pan. Toss in the 2 chopped onions and garlic cook until a little golden.

- once golden set aside.

- cook the ground beef once cooked turn off round.

- pour tomato juice in casserole along with beef, onions, garlic, the diced tomatoes, black olives, mushrooms, tomato sauce. Turn on medium fire and let boil for 5 minutes be sure to mix it all together.

-once the sauce is boiling throw in 1 tsp of black pepper and 1 tbsp of herbes de provence.

- mix well turn down fire to simmer and cover.

let cook for 2 hours and be sure to mix once in a while to make sure it does not still to the bottom.

and voila you have an almost homemade spaghetti sauce.
