This is a recipe my husband found in a Men's Health Magazine. This is a hearty sauce with lots of flavor. It takes your regular spaghetti sauce and turns it up a notch. My husband loves it!

Pour in the mushrooms, tomatoes, sauce, and seasoning and stir everything together. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve 1/2 c sauce over 1 c spaghetti.

I used about 700 g of lean ground beef. I used a jar of marinara sauce. It's a great sauce. DH raved about it. Thanks Mama Sweet Rolls :) Made for the best of 2011 tag game

This is a tasty way to liven up a jar of spaghetti sauce. I did not have mushrooms and we did not miss them. This is a good weeknight sauce for spaghetti as it does not take very long to make. Thank you for posting. Made after I adopted Mama Sweet Rolls for 2011 Fall PAC
