1-1/2 lbs. ground beef, Italian sausage or pork (or a mix of any)

Directions:
Brown the meat in a large skillet or saucepan. Drain, add garlic and return to heat for additional 2 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste, add olive oil. Taste for seasoning and add salt as needed. Stir and bring to low simmer. This can simmer (coverdd) on low for several hours or is ready to eat as soon as it's heated through. Stir frequently while simmering to prevent burning. Add the fresh basil right before serving.

Serve over hot spaghetti noodles. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the spaghetti sauce I like to make. It freezes well if you have leftovers, and makes a great sauce for lasagna.

If you like onions or red peppers in your sauce, you can add them when browning the meat.
