Simple Meatsauce

Another recipe copied straight from PaleOmg. Tasty and simple. Serve over sauteed veggies. I made this before our trip and froze half of the meat sauce. We finished it up when we got home! 

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 pound ground chicken (or beef)
  • 1 pound bulk pork mild italian sausage
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 (14 ounce ) cans of tomato sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons fat of choice
  1. Heat up a large saucepan over medium heat, add a couple tablespoons of fat of choice then add minced garlic cloves, the bell peppers and onion along with a little salt and pepper to the pan.
  2. Move vegetables around until onions become translucent.
  3. Add ground chicken and bulk Italian sausage to the saucepan and break up the meat.
  4. When meat has begun to cook through, add the spices.
  5. When meat is almost done cooking, pour in the two cans of tomato sauce.
  6. Salt and pepper once more, then reduce heat and let simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  7. When all the flavors are well mixed, add the chopped fresh basil, mix well, and serve!
  8. Easy peasy! Put on mushrooms, brussel sprouts, spaghetti squash, eggs, acorn squash, really anything you want. Or eat it cold.
