Mom’s Spaghetti Sauce

1lb hamburger

4 cloves garlic minced

1 1/2 TBL dried basil

1/2 TBL dried Italian seasoning

1 quart whole tomatoes

1 quart v8 juice

1 quart water

1 12 ounce can tomato paste

1/4 cup red wine

Season hamburger with salt and brown in large pot breaking it into pieces as you go along with minced garlic. Add herbs and stir for a minute. Pour in tomatoes, juice, paste, water, wine and sugar. Turn heat to low and simmer stirring occasionally for an hour and a half until thickened and tomatoes are broken down and combined into the sauce. Taste and season with salt as needed. Serve over your favorite pasta. We love Barilla’s plus brand (yellow box).
