How to make it

  • Chop onions, garlic and sweet peppers. Separately, chop zucchini and mushrooms.
  • Add oil to a large skillet or Dutch oven. Heat over medium-high heat.
  • Add ground beef and brown. Put in bay leaf.
  • Add onions and garlic. Stir to combine and cook a bit. Add peppers and stir. Cook until onions and peppers are wilted. Add canned tomatoes and bring to a boil.
  • Add oregano, basil, thyme, Italian herbs, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Amounts vary. I use a lot of basil, thyme, oregano and Italian herbs (1 - 2 tbs?). I use less of the garlic powder and add salt/pepper to taste.
  • Bring back to a boil. Add mushrooms and zucchini.
  • Cover and cook over low heat for one and one-half hours. Serve over spaghetti, linguini or angel hair pasta.
