• If you asked my little girl what her favorite food is, she would tell you, "Spaghetti!" She loves the taste and fun, long noodles while I love how easy it is to make. This sauce beats any jarred sauce, and is worth the few minutes of effort.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef (or Gluten Free Italian Sausage)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) petite diced tomatoes (sometimes I blend these up first since my little ones don't like chunks of veggies)
  • 3 cans (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 T packed brown sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 t dried basil
  • 1 1/2 t dried oregano
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t dried thyme
