Homemade spaghetti sauce

Here is my homemade spaghetti sauce served over steamed kale with 2 of my turkey muffins.  Great meal!!  I love this sauce because it is easy, full of veggies and just plain delicious.

Homemade spaghetti sauce
2 TBSP Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 each chopped onion and bell pepper
about 4 carrots chopped
large can of crushed tomatoes about 28 oz, or 5-7 large tomatoes boiled, peeled and crushed
garlic powder
oregano, basil, thyme

Start with the oil in a large pan.  Saute the carrots about 3-5 minutes then add the bell pepper and onion.  Saute until soft.  Add the tomatoes.  If you are using fresh tomatoes you may need to add a bit of water to have a thinner consistency.  Add the seasoning of your choice.  I used 1 TBSP garlic powder and about 1/2 TBSP each of oregano, basil and thyme.  You could also use crushed red pepper flakes if you like a spicy sauce.  Simmer on low for 30-45 minutes until desired consistency.

This sauce stores really well and I just love the fresh taste!!  So easy too.  You can also make a double batch and freeze half for later.
