    TXOLDHAM's Note:

    This has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother, to me, and now to my children and their families. I never measure ingredients so I will do my best to give you ingredient proportions. Don't rush this one. Let it simmer and cook down for several hours. I use my food processor to do the chopping as there is a lot of it!Freezes great so I double, and sometimes triple, the recipe.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown meat in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Drain well. (I rinse my meat after browning to get as much grease off as possible.).
    2. 2
      Chop celery, bell pepper, onions and garlic in food processor or by hand.
    3. 3
      Add remaining olive oil and saute vegetables until tender over medium-high heat. Return meat to the pan.
    4. 4
      Add remaining ingredients and add enough water to make really watery or soupy. It will cook down. Add water as needed. Simmer about 4 to 6 hours until cooks down to proper consistency for sauce.

      This sauce was delicious! Although there was quite a bit of chopping, it was very easy to make. I am not a hug fan of green peppers, so I only used 3/4 of one. Right now my (Italian) husband is enjoying his third bowl of spaghetti. Two thumbs up from the Lone Star State!!!
