Recipe of the Week...Meaty Marinara Sauce with a Kick!

Here's my marinara sauce recipe that I promised to share with you...which is Mike's favorite! I hope that your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

  • 1 - 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 - 15 oz. cans tomato sauce
  • 1 - 14.5 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 small can sliced mushrooms, drained (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes (amount can be reduced for a less spicy sauce)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 1/2 Tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 Tbsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 Tbsp. dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Brown hamburger meat with onion, drain and place into crockpot. Combine other ingredients and add to meat and onion mixture in crockpot. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Serve with pasta of your choice and additional parmesan cheese if desired...scrumptious!!

Have a fun and safe weekend!
