Number of Servings: 5


    1-2 packages of hamburger meat (apprx. 17 oz or 400g)
    2 cups diced tomatoes
    1.5 cup tomato puree
    1 cup chopped onions
    1 tsp chopped garlic (or garlic powder)
    3/4 tsp canola or olive oil
    2 tsp Italian seasoning (pref. fresh herbs)


Serve over pasta or vegetables. If you don't mind tomato seeds, use fresh tomatoes in place of puree. You can peel the fresh tomatoes if you prefer. Use italian herbs if you have these available; or substitute with dried italian seasoning.


Heat oil in pot and when warm, add onions and garlic. Stir until onions are translucent. Add hamburger meat and stir until meat is no longer pink. Add puree, diced tomatoes, and italian seasoning and simmer on low for at least 15 minutes. For a better flavor, simmer for at least 45 minutes.
