Ingredients

8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
3/4 pound ground round
1 cup finely chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, un-drained
1/4 cup dry red wine
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3/4 teaspoon sugar

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Combine beef, onion, and garlic in a large saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well. Wipe drippings from pan with a paper towel; return meat mixture to pan.

Stir in tomatoes and next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in basil, olive oil, and salt. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve over pasta.
