The above recipes by Woody Harper


2 Mre Beefsteak patties, cubed
2 (16 oz.) cans whole tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. dried basil
8 ounces uncooked spaghetti

Cook onion and garlic in a tablespoon of oil until soft. Stir in tomatoes (with juices) and seasonings. Heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 40 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened. As sauce thickens, break up tomatoes with a fork.

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions, and drain. Stir cubed beef into sauce, and simmer another 5 minutes, until beef is heated through. To serve, place spaghetti on serving plate, and pour sauce over. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley if desired.

Serve with garlic bread and salad.
