  • 2 cans (29-ounce) tomato sauce
  • 1 jar marinated artichokes (I buy mine at Trader Joe's)
  • 10 ounces fresh spinach
  • 3 tablespoons dried basil
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned completely, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Add in tomato sauce, basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, sugar, salt, and pepper.  Stir well; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook sauce at a simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick and rich, about 1 hour.

  3. About 10 minutes before the sauce is finished, add in your chopped artichoke and spinach, stir to combine and allow the flavors to meld for the rest of the cooking time.
