Meat Sauce

Meat Sauce
1 large onion, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 lbs lean ground beef
1 680 ml can (approx. 3 cups) of your favourite tomato sauce (or can be a bottle of strained tomatoes)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp basil

In a medium sized pot saute diced onion in the olive oil.  When softened, add the ground beef. Brown the beef and then add your sauce.  Add the salt, oregano, pepper, and basil and stir well.  Simmer on low for about an hour.  This is a great sauce that can be made in bulk and frozen to be used in a variety of recipes.  (See Pasticho II.)  I've also added diced zucchini, peppers, and mushrooms (sauteed with the diced onion). As always, have fun with it and make it your own.  :D
