Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef

Directions

In a large saucepan, cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, pepperoni and onion if desired. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until thickened. Serve over pasta. Yield: 5 cups.
Thick 'n' Hearty Pasta Sauce can also be made with 1/2 pound Italian sausage instead of the pepperoni. Brown it along with the beer.
