  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned completely, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Stir tomato sauce, basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, sugar, salt, and pepper into the beef; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook sauce at a simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick and rich, about 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Fresh herbs really adds an extra layer of flavor. If I have any of the ingredients fresh, I substitute: 1 cup basil, chopped; 1 cup oregano, chopped, 2 onions, finely chopped; or 3 cloves garlic, minced.
  • This makes enough sauce for 2 boxes of pasta; it freezes well.
