DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in large Dutch oven or heavy pot; add onion and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic, ground beef& salt and cook over medium heat, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no pink remains.
  • Don't drain off fat as this helps the sauce to"cling" to the pasta.
  • Add tomatoes, tomato sauce& tomato paste; mix well, breaking up tomatoes with a wooden spoon.
  • Use the red wine to rinse the tomato cans& remove any product left behind- then add to the Dutch oven.
  • Add spices& mix well; bring the mixture to a boil, then lower heat& simmer for AT LEAST 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • If you find that the sauce is getting too thick for your taste, add a little water.
  • Remove bay leaves, ladle over your favourite type of spaghetti& sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
