Roasted Garlic Spaghetti Sauce

I have never made homemade spaghetti sauce before, honestly we don't eat a ton of it because we ate it so much when we first got married and I was still in school while working and Gray was working.  It was easy to throw together some meat and a jar of sauce.  I just got burnt out on it but I made this sauce the other night and it's delicious.  It also made a huge pot full and I was able to freeze some too. Even better!!! This recipe was adapted from Simply Gloria.

2 lbs of sausage or ground beef
1 red pepper (chopped)
1 large white onion (chopped)
8 oz fresh mushrooms (sliced)
12 oz tomato paste
28 oz tomato sauce
8 cups whole tomatoes, canned (if using fresh tomatoes, blanch and peel)
2 tbsp basil
2 tbsp marjoram
2 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
3 garlic bulbs (roasted, peeled and chopped)
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil

Brown the meat in a skillet.  When the meat it cooked add to a large pot then add the tomato sauce, whole tomatoes, tomato paste and all of the seasonings.  Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 hour.  After the hour is up add in the mushrooms, onion, red pepper and garlic.  Continue to cook for at least 1 more hour or up to 4 more hours stirring occasionally.  Once ready to eat, pour of pasta of choice and serve.
