I add a lot of oregano.

Add as much oregano as you like.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Once it starts boiling turn the heat down to a simmer.
Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

“Very good spaghetti sauce! I used garlic sausage instead of the hot, plus I added mushrooms. In addition I used a yellow pepper and served it over top of Ramen Noodles minus the seasoning packet. I doubled the recipe so I could freeze the leftovers.”
