Great basic recipe, my husband and I changed it a bit by sautee'ing real onions and 2 cloves garlic with the mince, then added more black pepper and dried basil to the sauce. Go easy on the basil, a little bit goes a long way. I would never have thought to add sugar to the sauce, but it makes a difference.
We also only simmered for about 25 minutes, but I forgot to uncover it (splatter concern), so it was a bit runny. If you want to cover the sauce to cook, try draining the can of chopped tomatoes first to reserve, you can always add it in later if you need more liquid.
