Since I’m normally such a recipe-follower when it comes time to cook, I feel really proud of this meat sauce that I’ve been making lately, as it’s my own concoction.

1 lb. of ground beef, preferably grass-fed

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 28 oz can/box of crushed or chopped tomatoes (I use the boxed Pomi tomatoes)

1/4 cup red wine

1/2 tsp oregano

Few basil leaves, fresh or dried

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon parsley, chopped

Saute the ground beef in a skillet until no longer pink. While the beef cooks, in a separate pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the carrots and onion for about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until it turns golden. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked beef into the pot, then add the tomatoes, wine, oregano, basil (rip the leaves up if fresh), and salt and pepper. Simmer for one hour, partially covered. Add the parsley, stir, then serve over your favorite pasta. (Bionaturae whole wheat pasta is my choice!)
