Barb lived next door to my parents before I was born, so when I would ask my mom to make "real spaghetti sauce," this is what I meant. I love this stuff. I could eat it by the bowlful.

Sauté onion in olive oil until clear, add ground beef. Drain fat.

In a large pot, combine onion, beef, garlic powder, tomato puree, tomato paste, water, sugar, salt, pepper, bay leaf, pepper, and oregano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, let simmer 45 minutes, or until of desirable consistency. Remove bay leaf before serving. Serve over your favorite pasta with some crusty bread on the side.
