Best Spaghetti Sauce Ever

After years in the making, my Italian neighbor told me this was the best marinara sauce she had ever tasted. The long cooking time gives the sauce a rich meaty flavor.

Ingredients
  1. 1 large onion, chopped
  2. 2 stalks celery, chopped
  3. 1 whole red bell pepper, chopped
  4. 1/4 cup garlic, chopped
  5. 3 large carrots, chopped
  6. 2 - 28 ounce cans whole Italian tomatoes, chopped (or hand crushed in the pot)
  7. 1 - 15 ounce can chopped tomatoes
  8. 2 - 6 ounce cans tomato paste
  9. 2 Tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  10. 1 Tablespoon dried basil
  11. 1 Tablespoon dried Oregano
  12. 1 1/2 teaspoons dried crushed pepper flakes
  13. 3 teaspoons
  14. 2 Tablespoons sugar (optional)
  15. 1-2 cups beef broth or red wine
Instructions
  1. Sauté onion over medium heat until clear. Add celery, bell pepper, garlic, and carrots and sauté for a few more minutes until vegetables are tender. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for three to five hours, stirring occasionally to keep the sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Notes
  1. For my weight conscious daughters, we serve this sauce over whole wheat pasta (see recipe), spaghetti squash or zucchini cut into noodles and lightly boiled, also know as "zoodles" with meatballs (either beef/pork meatballs or veggie meatballs).
