  • 1 pound hamburger (optional)
  • 4 cups tomato sauce (pureed or diced tomatoes will work)
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt (optional)


  1. If you don't plan on using beef at all, skip this step! In a frying pan, fry the hamburger with the diced onion until no pink remains in the meat and the onions are transparent. (If you didn't use lean beef, make sure to drain excess grease from the burger before the next step.)

  2. Pour the ingredients into a saucepan if your frying pan isn't large enough. Add in the tomato sauce, garlic, oregano, and salt. Stir occasionally and let the mixture simmer until warmed through.

  3. Serve over warm pasta. If you feel fancy add a bit of Parmesan cheese on top.
