Add the beef to the onion mixture and saute until browned. Puree (or crush) the tomatoes and their juices and add to the beef mixture, along with basil, mushrooms, olives and their juices, and parsley. Simmer for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Taste before serving. The sauce should be on the salty side. Yield 12 to 13 cups; Serves 12
