Turkey or Lean Beef Meat Sauce (Optional Crock Pot)

“No added fat just lots of flavor in this chunky meat sauce. Not just chunky from the meat but from the diced vegies which adds flavor and keeps the fat down without adding to much meat! You can sweeten the sauce if the tomatoes are not sweet enough but wait till it simmers for 1/2 an hour then taste and season as you like. The carrot has a way of taking any tang from the sauce and the onions sweeten it. This make alot so you can have some for dinner and freeze some for the future.”
