Mom's Spaghetti Sauce (from Dessert Diva)

I've been enjoying this recipe for years! Growing up, this spaghetti sauce was a staple in our house, and now my husband just loves it so it's part of our regular rotation. The greatest part about this recipe is that it is incredibly easy to put together, makes enough for an army and freezes really well!

Side note: It is a VERY thick, meaty sauce...not very liquidy at all. Just beware, if that's not really your thing!

2 lbs. hamburger
1 onion, diced
1 tbsp. garlic
2-15 oz. cans diced tomatoes (or use fresh...whatever!)
2-6 oz. cans tomato paste
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 green pepper, diced

Brown beef in a large skillet; drain off fat. Add remaining ingredients; simmer for 1hour. Serve over pasta.

P.S. I also like to put it on top of garlic bread. Just sayin'.
