Spaghetti Sauce

Nothing tastes more like home than my mom's spaghetti sauce.  This delicious, meaty, and hearty sauce is perfect on a cold evening.  The best thing about this sauce is that you can make tons of it and freeze it for an evening when you don't feel like cooking.  Just boil some pasta and heat the sauce - tastes like it has been simmering all day.  When I make this, I usually double the recipe - you'll just need a really large pot!  I can then have dinner and freeze 4 tuperwares of sauce too!

Spaghetti Sauce

1lb ground beef
5 cans tomato sauce
2 small cans tomato paste
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 bay leaf
½ tsp. marjoram
½ tsp. rosemary
3 tbsp. vinegar
½ cup brown sugar

Fry ground beef and drain.  Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil and simmer for at least one hour, stirring frequently.
