What's Cookin' Sunday

I'm a little broke right now, so this week's What's Cookin' is simple and there's only 1 recipe.  There was going to be a ham cooked, but what I thought was a ham that was being given to me was actually a pork shoulder roast...I just cooked one of those last week in the crockpot, so I just stuck it in the freezer for later.  This week, we have spaghetti sauce!

Now, every time I make spaghetti sauce, it is different.  I like to include fresh sauteed veggies.  I don't make the base sauce from scratch.  I use store bought jarred sauces.  I don't always use the same one.  I'll just look at the selection on the shelves and see which one looks good to me that day.  Today, Ragu Super Chunky Mushroom sauce just "spoke" to me.  Haha.  So, I bought that and an onion and headed home.  I already had a pound of 93% lean ground beef, canned no salt added diced tomatoes and tomato paste at home.
