Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

1 large can Hunts tomato puree
1 large can Hunts tomato sauce
1 Large can Hunts tomato paste
1 large can mushrooms, stems and pieces (optional)
7 cups water
2 medium/1 large onion, cut fine
4 large green peppers, cut fine
6 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon oregano leaves
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (add after finished)
2-3 pounds of cooked hamburger, drained and rinsed

Add all ingredients and bring to a boil. Continue to simmer for 5-7 hours until thick, stirring occasionally. Add cooked hamburger and parmesan cheese. Warm and serve over spaghetti noodles.

*I use 2 small cans of tomato paste because I can't find a large one.
*I use 6 cups water instead of 7 because my pan is too small but it works just fine.
*This makes a lot of sauce so I freeze a bunch of it in gallon bags.
