Brown meat with garlic and minced onion (or real onion if you choose to use it.) Puree diced tomatoes with tomato paste and add to meat. Add seasonings and mix well. Vegetables can be added according to how long you want them to cook (I usually add zucchini and yellow squash at the very end and only cook for a few minutes, but the mushrooms can go in at the beginning.) Simmer ~ 40 minutes. Add a little water if needed.
