Red Sauce

I think I will give this a shot. It seems rather Zen-like, and I never thought to try it with carrots. I have been using a variety of sweetening agents over the years with varying success. I plan to make several adjustments:

I might add bit of tomato paste
meat (OK..its not a pure red sauce)
I will use a lot of onion in addition to a lot of garlic
some basil would be nice, but I will not use it on the first batch
add several bay leaves
cook the stuff for several hours to increase the richness

  1. i just made a batch of sauce with meatballs, and i added @ a tbsp of dried cranberries to the initial simmer and let them disintegrate. i had to mash up a few hold-out cranberries, but I didn't add any other sweetening agents and it turned out pretty well
