homemade meat sauce with pasta

i said in an earlier post i would give you my homemade pasta sauce, and i’m delivering today.

i’m more of a meat sauce fan than meatball fan.  i will make meatballs from time to time to shake things up but for the most part, i’m a meat sauce kind of girl.  i had some left over meat from making hamburgers the other day and  being on the recent pasta kick, i decided to whip out my meat sauce – it’s been a while.

  • ground meat ( i had 1/2 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • splash of red wine
  • a couple glugs of worchestershire sauce
  • squirt of mustard
  • 1/4 cup oregano leaves
  • basil
  • pasta, of your choice

in a pan over medium-high heat, spray with non-stick cooking oil and cook the garlic and onion until the onion is translucent.  add the meat and brown.  when the meat has browned, add the splash of red wine to deglaze the pan for about a minute or so.  next, add the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste.  stir well to mix the paste in.  add a couple of glugs of worchestershire sauce, the squirt of mustard and the oregano leaves.  stir well, cover and turn the heat to low.

while the sauce is simmering, boil the pasta of your choice.  when the pasta is done, serve the pasta on a plate, spoon the sauce the pasta and top with basil.

bada-bing. bada-boom.  munja.  this dish hits the spot every time.  yum!
