Number of Servings: 6


    1 med onion
    1 lb lean ground beef, drained of fat
    7 cloves of garlic
    1/4 cup water
    1 jar of Prego spaghetti Sauce, 375 ml
    2 bay leaves
    1 tbsp dried italian herb mix
    1/2 tsp sale
    1 tbsp pepper
    1/2 tbsp crushed dried chili flakes


Sautee chopped onion and garlic cloves in olive oil, salt, pepper, herbs and chili flakes on medum-high heat.

Once Onions and garlic are translucent, and ground beef to pan, mincing with a spatula so that meat is crumbled into granules.

Once beef is cooked thoroughly, drain the mixture of it's fat in a colander for 5 mins or so.

In a medium saucepan, empty the jar of sauce, and add an additional 1/2 jar of water (otherwise, the sauce is just too thick).

Heat the sauce on a med-low setting, and add beef/onion/garlic mixture, simmer slowly for as long as possible - up to 45 mins, although in a pinch, the sauce can be eaten as soon as all the ingredients are heated through. Remove bay leaves.
