0 Gluten Free Meat Sauce

Wow, this has been quite the crazy month. My master's class is coming to a close this week, and I just finished the first paper I've written in years yesterday. The past few nights have lasted rather long, so I'll keep this post short and get to the recipe so I can get to my bed for some much needed sleep.

This is a great gluten free meat sauce that can be prepared within 30 minutes. Its a wonderful sauce to make at the beginning of the week so you can reheat it as the week marches on.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes

30 oz tomato sauce
15 oz diced tomato
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/4 lb mushrooms, diced
1 tbsp thyme
1/2 tbsp oregano
1/2 tbsp basil
1 pound ground beef
salt and pepper

In a large saucepan, add the sauce, tomato, and paste. Stir together and heat over medium heat.

In a small pan over medium heat, sautee the garlic and onion with 2 tsp olive oil for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are slightly translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes. Add the onion mix the the sauce, along with the thyme, oregano, and basil.

In the small pan, brown the ground beef until there is no more pink meat. Drain the grease once completely cooked, and add to the sauce. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer until ready to serve with gluten free pasta.
