The Best Speghetti Sauce

Ground beef (I usually use about 1 1/4 lb of ground turkey. Use as much as you like.)
onion (I like a lot but use to your taste.)
Brown these two ingredients and set aside

Sauté these ingredients:
2 Tbs Olive Oil
Garlic (again I like a lot so I use a few cloves)
Grated carrot

Add 6- 15 oz cans of tomato sauce

Bring to a boil and add:

1 T parsley

1 T basil

1 beef bouillon cube

1t salt

½ t pepper

1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning (this isn’t part of the original recipe but I like it better with it)

Finally add the ground beef and let it simmer at least 6 hrs uncovered (so it thickens).

Recipe given to me by my sister-in-law Jennie. Super yummy!!!! Super Easy!!!

This is a thick rich yummy sauce. Canned and jarred sauces can contain so much add sugar and corn syrup that isn't neccesary. I usually make this in a crockpot because I don't have a big pan so I just get the tomato sauce in the crockpot first thing to get it warm and bring up to a simmer and then add everything else and it works great. Hope you like it!

We loved this sauce!! It made a ton and lasted for several meals. We even froze some.
