Yummy Spaghetti Sauce. Tomato/Meat/ Basil - Acid reduced
Two 690 ml cans of simple tomato sauce
Two 796 ml cans of diced tomato
Two pounds of extra lean ground beef
Two pounds of lean ground veal
(one shredded carrot to reduce the acid)
Fresh basil to taste (usually about 10 fresh leaves chopped)
1 jar of Molisana Sausage cut into small bits
During the summer when we have access to fresh tomato from the garden I use those instead of canned.
This is a one pot recipe. No need to clean extra right?
Brown the meat with the garlic in a large saucepan. Reduce heat ( I"ll do a post on meatballs later this week)
Once browned add the two cans of tomato paste and mix thoroughly on low heat.
Add the rest of the liquid ingredients, shredded carrot and basil. Stir all together and add the sliced sausage.
Simmer on low stirring regularly for approx 3 hours until desired thickness has been reached. Serve over your favorite pasta.
Tonight we are having Rotini, with a side of salad. Yummmmy.
