Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

So I promised you the amazing spaghetti sauce I made last night so here it is!

Marti's Homemade Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Ingredients: 1 28oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 12oz can tomato sauce
1 6oz can tomato paste
1 med onion finely chopped
2 carrots finely chopped (this sweetens sauce without adding sugar)(optional mushrooms) 1 cup finely chopped
1.5 lbs lean ground beef
2 tsp garlic powder
1 T oregano
(recipe can be doubled and freeze in large gallon freezer bag) Can be used as sauce for lasagna as well.
Directions: In large cooking pot cover bottom with thin layer of olive oil (med to high heat)
Saute onion, carrots and mushrooms until onions are translucent
Stir in tomato paste - this brings out flavors in the tomato paste. Set aside.
In a seperate pan saute meat with a small amount of olive oil.
Drain excess fat and add to veg mixture.
Add all remaining ingredients. Let simmer on low at least 30 min.
Serve over pasta of your choice. Enjoy!

I froze half of the sauce last night. I can't wait to have it again. Let me know if you decide to make it. Had to add the last pic of Ryan for the grandparents. We had a fun day of errands and naps. So what's your favorite homemade recipe?
