Jan’s Mom’s Spaghetti Sauce


Jan’s Mom’s Spaghetti Sauce

My mother got this recipe from an Italian war bride after WWII.  I can’t tell you how many times my parents were asked to make this for church spaghetti suppers.  This was also mom’s company dish, and mine too.

1 to 2 lbs. ground beef or ground chuck
1 onion, chopped
3 or 4 inches of sliced pepperoni stick
2 cans tomato sauce (small ones, I used Hunt’s)
2 cans tomato paste
2 cans water (use the tomato sauce and paste cans)
salt and pepper
Garlic powder

Brown hamburger and drain well.  Add onion to brown,
add pepperoni last. 
Drain well. 
Add rest of ingredients and simmer 2 to 3 hours on low flame,

Needless to say, any left-over sauce make a great pizza!
