Meat Sauce 

  

 
Today is my daughters’ birthdays. They made a special request to have noodles and meat sauce for their birthday dinner.

There is a more gourmet way to make this, which I will post too, but this is my fast and easy meat sauce on the fly.

Ingredients 

1 onion chopped 

1 pepper chopped 

2 lbs ground meat, browned 

1 jar tomatoe sauce. I have also used canned diced or crushed tomatoes  

1 6 oz can tomatoe paste. When using canned tomatoes, more tomatoe paste may be necessary to get the desired thickness 

Wine, “a splash”

1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, oregano, basil, Italian spice blend

1 clove garlic, crushed 

If using canned tomatoes, adjust the seasoning.

Instructions 

Brown meat in sauce pan and remove neat after cooked.

Sauté onions and peppers. Add meat, tomatoe sauce, tomatoe paste, wine (optional), salt, pepper and add spices. Cover and simmer until done. Usually, I add the crushed garlic near the end, but today I put it in before I left. Adjust seasonings and serve.

Here are the pictures from this morning:

   
 

This is the final product:

 
 

The girls ate it with noodles, their favorite.

It was relatively fast and definitely easy. The girls were pleased.

Happy birthday!
