Submitted by Linda Lovisa


1 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef 
1 large can of tomato sauce
1 med. can of diced or whole tomato's
1 small can of tomato paste
small onion or 6 green onions
red or green pepper diced
3 stalks of celery diced
mushrooms optional
garlic cloves
bay leaves,
1 teaspoon of basil
1 1/2 teaspoon of savoury
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of thyme
1 teaspoon of chilli peppers
salt and pepper to taste ( I don't normally need to add any)

Brown ground beef then rinse with hot water to reduce fat
Add onion and garlic.  When onion becomes transparent add peppers and celery.
Then add can of tomato sauce, diced tomato's and paste----Stir
Add herbs
I usually put mushrooms in at the very end so they don't get too mushy
Simmer on low for 2 to 3 hours. 
Serve with pasta

On the side: 
Prepare baguette in thin slices, prepare a shallow dish of virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, dip bread. Mmmm good.
Bon appetite!
