|This starts with Rao's marinara, which is the best marinara in a jar I have yet to encounter. It's a terrific base for adding more goodies, too. Here's what I do do create a fast and easy — and delicious — meat sauce:|
Serves three to four, depending on how hungry everyone is. Makes great "Sloppy Joes", too, if you enjoy those; I suggest you try it between two halves of a toasted "Everything Bagel".
Mix one pound hamburger well with one teaspoon minced garlic and one teaspoon dried onion in a large bowl.
Select a good-sized frying pan sufficient to easily hold the hamburger. Pour a tablespoon of olive oil into it and see that it is dispersed to cover the bottom of the pan. Preheat — medium heat.
Move well mixed hamburger from the bowl to the frying pan. Cook until uniformly browned, stirring regularly.
Drain the excess fat from the frying pan to a disposable jar, then rinse the bowl you've been using, then transfer the drained, cooked hamburger to it.
Add ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning to the hamburger in bowl. Mix well.
In large saucepan, combine 32 ounce jar of Rao's marinara, the prepared hamburger, the two 7 ounce cans of sliced or whole mushrooms, stir until well mixed.
Simmer for 30 minutes over low heat; don't let it boil. Serve with your pasta. The sauce will keep for several days in the refrigerator, and can also be used (for instance) for sloppy joes, meatball subs, etc. Enjoy!
