simple spaghetti sauce--guest recipe

my husband's step- father was a fabulous cook
and would do most of the cooking in their house
he has passed now,
but his memory and recipes live on
through his children 
and my mother-in-law
who has graciously offered 
dante's spaghetti sauce recipe to both me
and you
it is simple and straightforward
thank you phyllis
for this wonderful recipe 
and for being part of our
Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb ground round
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 medium onion--finely diced
6 oz tomato paste
15 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup white wine
1 tsp (or more) italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
grated parmesan cheese for serving
cook meat and onions in 2 Tbs butter.  when the meat is completely cooked through, add the tomato paste tomato sauce and remaining butter.  cook on medium heat for 1/2 hour--do not let it boil.  add wine and  italian seasonings and cook another 1/2 hour. serve over pasta of just dip your bread in the pot and get full before dinner is served--like i tend to do!
