CINDY CROOKSTON’S FABULOUS SPAGHETTI SAUCE--Cindy Crookston, a friend of Lynne's

This is a totally fabulous spaghetti. It is one of the few meals that I will eat leaftovers of.

1 ½ pound hamburger or ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped
1/3 to ½ green bell pepper, chopped
mushrooms, chopped (optional) I use one or two cans, drained
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
1-2 (15 oz.) cans tomato paste
1 (29 oz.) can diced tomatoes
2 Tbs.. sugar (optional—Cindy uses it)
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. Basil
½ tsp. instant onion
¼ tsp. marjoram
¼ tsp. thyme
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. pepper
1/8 - ½ tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp oregano

Sauté ground meat with onions, pepper and mushrooms. Add remaining ingredients and simmer several hours. Cindy uses the crock pot and so do I.
