adapted from Lynnette McMaster (one of my fabulous Sister-in-laws!)
When I was single, my sister-in-law would often share recipes with me that she thought would be useful and this one has been more than useful through the years! I always question myself as to why I don't make batches and batches of this and always have it in the freezer! Now that the weather is cooling off, I think I need to start simmering up some huge batches so I have easy sauce for stuffed shells, lasagna, spaghetti, and more!
1 pound hamburger1 pound sausage
2 16-oz cans stewed tomatoes
1 can tomato soup
1 can tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon sugar
garlic, onion salt, basil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, salt, pepper
1 large jar Ragu Spaghetti Sauce
Brown meat; Combine in a large pot. Sprinkle spices on top and mix in (to taste). Add all other ingredients and simmer on the stove for several hours, stirring occasionally.
(make several batches and freeze!)
