Quick and Easy Tomato - Meat Sauce

What up, cool weather.  Glad you're here. To celebrate the end of my lazy weekend and the beginning of the cool weather, I decided to have some spaghetti.  Actually, it was rotini because that's what I had on hand.  Details, smetails. This sauce was super easy and quick to put together, the taste was quite nice, too.  You should try it...if you like things that are yum.  If you don't, then don't try it.  No skin off my rear. 

Quick and Easy Tomato - Meat Sauce
adapted from WW online

2 tsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
4 medium garlic cloves, chopped
1 lb lean ground beef (7% fat)
28 oz canned crushed tomatoes, in tomato puree
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
1/4 tsp dried basil

Heat oil in a large skillet, add onions, carrots, and garlic.  Cook until onion is translucent, about six minutes. 

Add ground beef to skillet, cook until done.  Add tomatoes, salt, basil, and pepper flakes.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, allowing sauce to thicken. 

Serving size 2/3 cup

Serve with your favorite pasta.  Or a baked potato (that's what I'm having for lunch).  Or just eat it with a spoon.
