This is the best Spaghetti Sauce I have ever had! I am not Italian...I did not grow up with Italians...but I would bet this is pretty darn close to Italian-made and Italian-tasting spaghetti sauce! Make it and taste it for yourself.
This recipe is so darn delicious and easy to make! It has always been a favorite of mine and both my brothers and all of our kids and all of our friends and all of their kids, even as young kids! It sure beats what you can “doctor up” out of the jar! It’s especially good on Sundays because that gives you all day to let the sauce simmer. Be sure to enjoy it with your favorite spaghetti pasta noodle and Italian bread and salad.
In your crock-pot (or in a pot on top of the stove) add your already browned hamburger (spray the pan with cooking spray first). Add Pico de Gallo (diced green peppers and diced onions) and diced celery and the 5 cans of tomatoes (paste, puree, sauce, stewed, soup) and about ⅔ cup sugar to sweeten the tomatoes - this was always my mom’s specialty!! Add oregano, garlic, salt, parsley, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer all day - well, at least 6 hours. If you are simmering on the stove top and not using a crock-pot, then I suggest you simmer with a diffuser underneath to ensure the heat is small and even.
After the sauce simmers all day (at least 6 hours), then boil the spaghetti noodles and ladle the sauce over the drained spaghetti noodles. Serve with some garlic bread and your choice of salad. This is really a meal to enjoy - so BON APPETIT!!

"I have a discipline that has served me very well in my career and in my personal life... and that's gotten stronger as I've gotten older. I've always felt if I don't just have a natural knack for it, I will just out-discipline the competition if I have to - work harder than anybody else." -- Ryan Reynolds
