BBQ Spaghetti Sauce

I had leftover Hamburger Patties that my husband grilled up the other night so I decided to make a BBQ spaghetti!!! I served it with Smokey Garlic Ciabatta Rolls and Crispy Mesquite Roasted Green Beans.

3/4 lb Ground Beef*
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
12 oz tomato paste
1 cup water
2 cups skinned, seeded and diced tomatoes(about 1-14.5 oz can)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup honey
2 TB  brown sugar**
1/4 cup worcestshire sauce
1 TB dry mustard powder
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp smoked paprika

salt and pepper to taste

for an extra yummy kick add 1/4-1/2 cup whiskey or bourbon!

*I used leftover cooked hamburger patties and was able to throw it right in the pot with everything else. If you are starting with raw, cook it with the onion and garlic, drain if needed then continue.

**start without this addition and add as you see fit to sweetness preference

Add all ingredients to a large sauce pan, stir to combine well.

Cover and simmer over medium low heat for at least 1 hour.
Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. If you do adjustments, simmer at least 30 minutes more.
If it is a bit too thick , add a touch of water to adjust to your preference.

 Enjoy over pasta!
