Linguine with Meat Sauce and Mushrooms


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, chopped fairly fine
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/3 - 1/4 pound ground, lean chuck
2 cans (8-ounce) tomato sauce
1/4 - 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms
1/4 pound of cooked linguine


In two teaspoons of olive oil, heat 1 clove minced garlic, 1/2 finely chopped medium onion, 3 tablespoons chopped parsley.  Saute in oil until wilted.  Then saute 1/3-1/4 pound ground lean chuck; break it up with a wooden spoon.  Simmer about 1/2 hour with 2 cans (8-ounces) of tomato sauce, until thick and dark.  Then add 1/4 - 1/2 pound fresh, cleaned and sliced mushrooms, but not sauteed.  Simmer about 1/2 hour longer. 

Serve with about 1/2 pound of cooked linguine.  This makes 4 average servings or 3 man-sized ones. 


This is a "Mrs. R." original, she indicates that "This is very good; very rich and smooth and dark in color.  Jimmy wants it over hamburgers."
