I use a La Crueset pot when I am making this sauce.
I can throw everything in, put the lid on and leave it on the stove for hours.
In your pot, turn heat to medium.
Add hamburger(*), tomato paste, tomato sauce, water and stir and cook for 10 minutes.
Turn heat to simmer and add all spices, sugar, garlic, bay leaves, and chili powder.
Simmer for 2 hours.
*do not brown hamburger in pot.
Let it cook in the liquids.
Once sauce is done, all you have to do is make some gluten free pasta of your choice.
This day I used spirals. Enjoy!
