SLOW SIMMERED MEAT SAUCE FOR SPAGHETTI
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 lb bulk Italian pork sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup finely chopped carrot
1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
16 oz uncooked spaghetti
Shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired
The recipe calls for you to first brown the beef and the sausage, but I skipped that step.
In a slow cooker, mix beef, sausage and all remaining ingredients except spaghetti and Parmesan cheese.
Cover; cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours.
About 20 minutes before serving, cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package. Serve sauce over spaghetti and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
