We haven't had our old standby for a while. An onion, few cloves of garlic, a bay leaf and a carrot sweated in the pot then ground beef and two mild Italian sausages browned. A can of Hunt's tomato sauce and a can of Aylmer tomato soup. If you can't find Aylmer tomato soup then use nothing or tomato paste. A different brand of soup will not work.
I sliced up some mushrooms and added them to the pot. It simmered for a couple of hours at least. Rod the Yeti dropped in for a visit and stayed for dinner. He thought the sauce was terrific. I guess I'm getting jaded because to me, it's just spaghetti.
