Hearty Mushroom and Onion Meat Sauce

There is something about the aroma of sauteing mushrooms and onions... Mmmmm  
Unlike a traditional tomato based sauce; this recipe brings the rich flavors of the mushrooms, onions and meat to the forefront.  The variety of textures and rich flavors come together for a hearty topping for your favorite pasta.  I heated up the leftover sauce and served alongside a loaf of sourdough bread for dipping.  It was delicious!

"Sauteed onions and mushrooms in a thick, flavorful meat sauce."

3.     Add the garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes longer.

4.     Pour the diced tomatoes over the meat mixture, stir to combine.

5.     Sprinkle seasonings over the sauce, stir, and cook on low for 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
