    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    Well, at least it's my favourite ground meat and tomato based pasta sauce. I always just throw it together, so it's a little different every time, but this time I did take meassurements, so I could share. Feel free to experiment with extra herbs or using just beef or just pork. I always make extra with this because it freezes extremely well. The recipe can easily be halved or doubled!

    6. 6
      Stir in the oregano, basil, sugar and stock granules (if using).

      If you feel it needs it, add the third can of chopped tomatoes.
    9. 9
      Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    10. 10
      Serve over your favourite pasta, with fresh parmesan or use as a layer when making a lasagna.

      This is a lovely pasta sauce, we loved all the veggies in it! It was quick and easy to make too; I quartered the recipe and still got 3 serves out of it. Thanks for sharing Sylvie!
