    2 packages lean veal - I grind it myself or have your butcher do it. (approx 750-800 grams)
    2 onions
    3 carrots
    1 red pepper
    3 garlic cloves
    2 zuchinni or summer squash
    1/2 lb mushrooms
    2 cans tomatoes
    1 can crushed tomatoes
    basil and or other italian herbs.


Step 1: brown lean ground veal and then drain it in a colander so all the fat gets drained and rinse it in water.

Step 2: Chop all the fresh veggies in a food processor until finely minced.

Step 3:Puree two cans of tomatoes in processor as well.

In a large pot over medium heat add 1 tsp olive oil and add in chopped veggies. Then add ground veal back and then add tomatoes and the can of crushed tomatoes. Simmer for a long time. The veggies will disappear into the sauce and your kids will get lot of veggies with their pasta and meat sauce. ( for adults feel free to add a cup of red wine and let that meld into the sauce.

You probably could cook it in a crockpot but i haven't tried it yet. Enjoy!
