My Spaghetti

I love to cook - I don't consider myself a great cook though. I typically follow recipes and rarely make up my own. But for my spaghetti I have never used a recipe just bits a pieces of others until I came up with my own special recipe.

1/2 pound Italian sausage
1/2 pound Hamburger meat
1 (6.5 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 jar of your favorite sauce
1 tablespoon of grape jelly (or sugar)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 cup of water
1/2 package spaghetti seasoning
1/4 onion diced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 (8 ounce) package spaghetti

In a large saucepan , brown sausage and hamburger meat over medium heat with onion; drain and add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and jar sauce; mix well. In the empty jar add water, spaghetti seasoning and jelly (or sugar). With the lid on shake well until all is mixed up. Add to pot.

Simmer over medium-low heat for at least one hour; it is best if simmered all day.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Mix sauce with hot pasta; serve.
