Ground Beef & Pepperoni Spaghetti Sauce

2 jars tomato basil spaghetti sauce
1 can italian style diced tomatoes
1/2 small onion, diced
1 tsp. sugar
1 T chopped garlic
1/2 T dried basil
1/2 T dried parsley
1 tsp. chili flakes
1 whole pepperoni sausage, sliced into large chunks
1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey

Brown the ground beef on medium heat until cooked thoroughly. I usually add about 1/4 cup water to the beef to aid in crumbling. Drain fat from meat.
If you use turkey, season well while cooking (salt, pepper, paprika, dash garlic powder).

Put all of the above ingredients into a large pot and stir to combine.
Heat sauce until bubbling then reduce heat to low/medium and simmer for 30-40 mins.

Serve over spaghetti.

Bake mozzarella cheese on top of the spaghetti for spaghetti pizza!
