A - Z Blogging Challenge - P

This sauce is so delicious!!  I usually make a lasagna from a portion of it and freeze the rest in 3 or 4 containers for future use. It's perfect with spaghetti noodles, penne, or on top of ravioli or tortellini.



  "P "
Pasta Sauce

2 pounds lean ground beef
4 large onions - chopped
6 large cloves garlic - finely chopped
1 green pepper - seeded and chopped
3 - (796ml) cans diced tomatoes (don't drain)
1 - (680ml) can tomato sauce
1 - (369 ml) can tomato paste
3 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 - 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (you can adjust to suit your 'heat" preference)
4 - bay leaves

Partially brown ground beef,  draining any fat.  Add onions, garlic and green pepper.  Continue cooking until meat is browned and vegetables have softened.  Add canned tomatoes, tomato sauce and tomato paste.  Stir well.  Add remaining ingredients.  Stir.  Simmer, uncovered, on low heat for 3 -4 hours. Stirring occasionally.   Divide into containers and freeze, or use part now and freeze the rest for later.

Wow, this looks like a great choice for dinner tonight. I've already printed it out. I don't know why but my sauce seems to turn out different every time. I look forward to trying this one out.

Haven't made this kind of sauce in a while. I think it's time. Can't wait for fresh homegrown tomatoes instead of the canned kind. Yum!

Ooo I like a nice chunky sauce. Nowadays I tend to do a very simple sauce with ground sausage, but my mom always did a recipe similar to yours. :)
