  2. in a food processor add roughly chopped carrots, white onion, 3-5 garlic cloves. blend until finely chopped
  3. stir meat again and break into pieces. add carrot, garlic, onion mixture and salt & pepper, stir. cook for about 15 min.
  4. slice a couple of handfuls of cherry tomatoes, dice purple onion and red pepper, add to pot. lightly salt & pepper again and stir. let cook for about 15 min. more
  5. add 1 32 oz can of tomato sauce, lower heat to low, and let simmer for at least 30 min.


Serve with your favorite pasta. I like thin spaghetti.

I’ve used all different kinds of canned tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes, but found Hunts taste the best.
