Spaghetti Sauce with Meat

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Jacks wife

This recipe is a crowd pleaser. Makes enough for a big crowd or freeze some. For a meatier sauce add another pound of hamburger. For a thicker sauce put 28 oz less tomatoes in. Mushrooms can also be added.

This was a wonderful meat sauce. I did not tweak it that much. After halving the recipe, I added a 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and added a bit of flour and water. It was thick, meaty, delicious, devoured. The kids liked it, but more importantly, the wife did too! I'll be making this again.
