2 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
9 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
In a large nonstick skillet, cook and crumble beef and sausage with onion over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, pepperoni, sugar and herbs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a 6-qt. stockpot, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and return to pot. Toss with sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.
