I am the only person in the house that isn't a big fan of spaghetti and pasta sauce. I actually kinda hate it. If I make it for the fam and I don't feel like coking something else, I'll eat it. Another exception is if we are visiting someone and they make it. Otherwise, noooo thank you. This sauce though? Not bad at all. I honestly didn't mind it at all and I think it was the addition of the sweet potato puree that made it better. The fam ate it and loved it no problem. Since I started making this recipe, I've added pureed spinach, pureed broccoli, you name it. If I can steam it and puree it, I'll toss it in the spaghetti sauce (stew too but that's a whole other subject).
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 26oz can crushed tomatoes
8 oz reduced fat low sodium beef or chicken broth broth
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb whole wheat pasta
Pretty simple, but here's what I did. First I roughly chopped the onion, garlic, carrots and celery before I tossed them all in the food processor. Then I cooked them in a little oil. I mixed up the sirloin and the turkey and then added them to the pan. Then I seasoned it all with the salt and pepper. At this point I moved the whole operation to a bigger pot and added the crushed tomatoes and broth. Once that was mixed in, I added the sugar, sweet potato puree and Parmesan. Then I let it simmer for about an hour. It's ready in half that time really, but it's so much better the longer it sits there! Then just boil whatever pasta you want and you're done!
