Try this....Brown small onion in a drop of oil..add 1/2 pound chopped meat (small balls)brown in with onions. Add 1 can Hunts Tomato Sauce, with can of water to match, and 1 can Hunts Tomato Paste, with can of water to match. Season with oregano, garlic powder, thyme, basil, pepper, and sugar to taste. Simmer, and 30 minutes later, you have the BEST homemade spaghetti, ziti, or any pasta SAUCE you want to call it..BUT you MUST only use HUNTS products..ENJOY!! I pour over noodles or ziti, and layer with provolone, and sprinkle cheese, and Mozzarella shredded cheese. You can bake in oven if you want to melt the cheese for maybe 8 minutes covered.. YUMMY!!
