    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    quarts

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stir fry Celery, Carrots, Green Peppers, Onion & Garlic in olive oil in large saucepan. Season with Salt & Pepper, stirring frequently for 15 minutes. You don't want to burn the garlic!
    2. 2
      Add the Ground Meat and brown for 15 minutes, continue stirring as you don't want this to burn. Season again with Salt and Pepper, to taste.
    3. 3
      Add Crushed Tomatoes, Tomato Paste,1 full can of water & Bay Leaves. Leave lid on pan until it starts to boil.
    4. 4
      Turn heat down still keeping at a low boil, put lid back on pan and leave just a 1/2" crack to let steam out. You have to stir sauce often so it will not stick to bottom pan.
    5. 5
      You will have to add 1-2 cans of water during cooking to thin sauce out. If it appears to be getting to thick, add another can of water.
    6. 6
      DO NOT ADD ANY WATER THE LAST 1.5 hours or sauce will be too thin and watery.
    7. 7
      Sauce must cook for 5-6 hours.
    8. 8
      I add the parsley after this has been cooked, when it is off heat and cooling down.
    9. 9
      *Plan to make this on a day that you will be around the home. It is labor intensive and must be babysat.
