Lazy Pasta - What's for Dinner?

creamy tomato sauce with spaghetti

This is one of the lazy pasta dishes I cook when I want a quick meal without tinkering with crushed tomatoes. I don't have an exact recipe for the sauce, but the following is a guesstimate:

350 mL tomato sauce from a jar or a can
1/2 tablespoon onion powder (ran out of onions)
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder (also ran out of garlic)
3 heaping tablespoons of sour cream
1/6th of a cup of red wine
100 grams of ground beef, browned for extra flavour
3/4 tablespoon dried basil
3/4 tablespoon dried thyme
1/2 a tomato, diced
Salt and pepper to taste and dried parsley to garnish.
Mushrooms would have also been a nice addition, but I didn't have any on hand.

Mix and serve with your favourite pasta.
