    Sorry about the 'sausage meat'. I get it from my butcher. It is just the sausage mixture with out the casing. If you can't get it that way, just buy the actual sausage and remove the casings.

    The real Italian "sugo" is also made with the carrots. They use the "soffritto" which is finely diced celery, carrot and onion and fry that up before adding everything else ;) This sounds good... what exactly is Italian sausage meat?

    This sounds great! The carrot is a nice sneaky way to get extra veggies in and the kids won't even know it's in there. I have one who shuns all things healthy, but I bet he'd eat this.

    I always grate in a carrot to reduce acidity with out sugar when I make my sauce homemade, I know the jarred stuffis loaded with sugar, but I still toss in the carrot to give it more of a homemade taste.
