You will need to tweek this recipe to suit your own needs.

In a Dutch Oven or very large soup pot, brown and strain 2 lbs of ground beef, and set it aside. Saute some finely cut onions and green peppers in a little olive oil and garlic. Add one half of a can of beef stock and put the meat back into the pan. Add one 28 ounce can of Contadina Crushed Tomatoes, a can of Diced tomatoes and one can of Tomato paste.
