- 3-4 28 oz cans tomato sauce
- 12 oz tomato paste
- 1 1/2 Tbsp basil
- 1 1/2 Tbsp oregano
- 3 bay leaves
In a large pot sauté garlic, onion, and mushrooms in a drizzle of olive oil.
Add meat mixture to the mushroom and onion mixture. Then mix in tomato paste to mixture.
If using a slow cooker, transfer tomato paste meat mixture to the slow cooker before adding the tomato sauce.
Add tomato sauce and mix thoroughly.
Simmer for 3-4 hours on low stirring occasionally.
If using a slow cooker, cook on low for at least 4 hours.
Before serving pull out bay leaves they have an extremely strong flavor and biting into one is a super nasty surprise.
