Heat a large saute pan or pot to medium heat. Once the pan is hot add the: celery, onion, carrots, and peppers to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently to prevent burning.
After about 5 minutes add the garlic to the pan and then season with: oregano, garlic powder, black pepper, and red pepper. Continue to cook for another 3 minutes.
By now your veggies should be aromatic and soft. Add your ground beef to the pan. Using a stiff spatula break up the ground beef. Cook the beef with the veggies, for 6-8 minutes, until most of the beef is no longer pink, stirring often.
Now add the: stewed tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and mushrooms to the pan. Stir everything together until well combined. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook for a minimum of 15 minutes, lifting the lid every 5 minutes to stir.
While the sauce is cooking, boil your pasta of choice, my favorite is fettuccine...but feel free to use any pasta your heart desires.
The longer the sauce cooks the thicker and more flavorful the sauce will become. Once your sauce is done serve it over your favorite pasta.
