DARN GOOD SPAGHETTI SAUCE

4 Oct

8 oz. extra lean ground beef

4 slices turkey bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

3 brown mushrooms, sliced and chopped

2 carrots shredded (I use a mandolin)

1 can diced tomatoes

1 1/2 cups TJ’s marinara sauce (that’s all I had)

spices to taste (I added dried chopped onions, dried oregano, garlic salt and pepper)

Cook the turkey bacon pieces in a skillet.  Remove from skillet, and add chopped mushrooms and cook a bit.  Then add the shredded carrots and cook a little longer.  In the meantime, put marinara sauce and tomatoes into a big pan, and add the bacon pieces.  Add the partially cooked mushrooms and carrots to the sauce.  Use the skillet to cook the ground beef.  I mashed it around so there were not too many big pieces, but you can do it however you want.  Add the ground beef to the sauce, and let simmer for as long as you want.  I was hungry, so it was only for probably 20 minutes or so…

This made 6 large servings of sauce (about 3/4 cup each, and came out to 110 calories per serving.  Most worthy, in my opinion.
