Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

1 pound ground beef, lean
1 pound Sweet Basil Italian Sausage, casings removed and crumbled
2 cups grated carrot
1 medium onion, finely chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp. Parsley
1 Tbsp. dried Oregano
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
Olive Oil
salt & pepper
Garlic powder
2 28 ounce cans concentrated crushed tomatoes
1 23 ounce can tomato sauce

Cook hamburger with some garlic powder. Drain and set aside . Cook Italian sausage until almost done and add grated carrot. Cook the rest of the way. Transfer both meats to crock pot. In saucepan, saute onion in a little olive oil. Add garlic, parsley, oregano, salt & pepper until onions are soft. Transfer to crock pot. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and brown sugar and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

***This feeds a lot of people or gives lots of left over sauce to freeze. For picky eaters or young children I put some sauce in a food processor and puree. To make it a little thicker (if you like thick sauce) puree half and add back to sauce.
