Thursday's Southern Recipe
In honor of my Justice Seekers series, to which I've included some of my family's favorite recipes in the back of the upcoming release To Write a Wrong: A Justice Seekers Novel, releasing in September. But I'll be sharing some with those who are signed up for my newsletter, and I'll be sharing some here every Thursday.
This is for my best friend, Tracey...who LOVES my spaghetti! :) And that's us in the picture...cute, huh? lol
1 1/2 pounds lean hamburger meat
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 green bellpepper
1 red bellpepper
1 whole clove garlic, crushed
dash each of salt, oregano, dried basil, rosemary, and cayenne pepper
1 tspn each black pepper, baking soda and brown sugar
1 large can whatever brand spaghetti sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1 small can crushed tomatoes (but I crush mine even further)
Brown hamburger meat with onions & bellpeppers. Add in garlic for last 5 minutes of browning. Drain well. Mix all ingredients in large pot over medium heat until just before boiling. Reduce heat to lowest setting and let simmer for at least an hour. Serve over your choice of spaghetti noodles.
