Dad's Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

We love to make gluten-free spaghetti and pizza using Prego Original Spaghetti Sauce.  However, when I have time to plan ahead, I love to make my father-in-law's recipe for spaghetti sauce.  He was an awesome cook!  Allow at least four hours for this sauce to simmer.  Here is the recipe:

Dad's Spaghetti Sauce

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 lb. ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
one 14.5 oz. can Italian Style Diced Tomatoes
one 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
Tinkyada Spaghetti Noodles
garlic salt, to taste
Parmesan cheese , to taste

1.  In large saucepan, cook ground beef with onion until browned.  Add garlic.

2.  Pour cans of diced tomatoes into a blender and pulse until smooth.

3.  Add blended tomatoes and remaining ingredients to cooked ground beef.

4.  Simmer for at least four hours, stirring occasionally.  Cook the spaghetti noodles and add sauce.  Add garlic salt (if needed) and Parmesan cheese.

Makes 4-6 servings.
