In skillet, lightly brown ground beef and onions. Add tomato
sauce, water, salt, parsley, basil and pepper. Simmer about
20 minutes until sauce is thickened and well blended. Stir
Bring about 1 1/2 qts of water to boil in a large saucepan or
dutch oven. Add 1 tsp. salt and about 1/2 tsp. oil to water. Do

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Sauce can be made ahead of time. Flavor actually improves
when it is made in advance. You may add other ingredients
that you might like mushrooms. You can add many other
ingredients to make it your own. May serve with grated
parmesan cheese, etc. We prefer angel hair rather than the
the thicker spaghetti. Adding the sauce on the top allows you
to put the amount you like. The left over sauce can be
refrigerated or frozen to serve again later. If you mix the
sauce and spaghetti together, any leftovers don't keep as well
to be served again.
