1 lb. ground beef, turkey, chicken or Italian sausage (I used turkey)
2 cans (14 oz) petite diced tomatoes
2 cans (14 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
2 cans water, use the tomato sauce can
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp dried onion
3 Tbsp sugar (or to taste)
salt to taste
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried basil
2 Tbsp dried parsley

Brown meat along with garlic and onion. Drain meat and add tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and water. Stir and then add sugar and seasonings. Season to taste. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Allow it to simmer uncovered for several hours. If it gets too thick, just add some additional water or tomato sauce. Stirring frequently.
