simple meat sauce

one of my all time favorite meals is spaghetti with meat sauce.  we had it a lot growing up, and now i made it for max a lot, and he loves it just as much.  i make my own sauce, and it's SO simple.  oh, and so delicious.  you will make this and never go back to jarred/canned sauce again!  it's so easy, and so much better.  oh, and the best part?  you know exactly what's going into your family's bellies.  now that makes me a happy momma.

You Need:
1 lb extra lean ground beef
1/2 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, pressed
28oz can crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp basil
olive oil
salt & pepper
pasta of your choice

In a large saucepan put a swirl of olive oil, then add your beef and onions.  Saute until your meat is no longer pink and your onions are tender.  Add your garlic and saute for another minute or so.  Add in your can of crushed tomatoes, basil and season with salt & pepper.  Let simmer for 15-20 minutes.  While that simmers, cook your pasta.  Serve & enjoy.
