Microwave Sloppy Joe Sauce

Quick and simple. You can whip this up in the microwave, or just add the ingredients straight into your 1lb of cooked and drained ground beef, turkey, or chicken and simmer for a few. Serve on hamburger buns, or my favorite, spoon directly over cooked spaghetti. Serves 4.

1 Tbsp butter
1 clove garlic, chopped finely
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 6oz can tomato paste
1 cup water
2 Tbsp molasses
1 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp mustard
1 tsp Worchestire sauce
1 tsp salt
Salt / Pepper / Sugar to taste

Place butter, garlic, and onion into a microwave safe bowl. Cook on high for 30 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir, and microwave for 30 more seconds. Add remaining ingredients. Cover loosely to avoid a mess and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, and season to taste.
To serve, combine sauce with 1lb cooked ground beef, chicken, or turkey and enjoy hot on buns or over pasta.
