An excellent chunky pasta sauce with beef, pork, lots of vegetables and tons of flavor. The carrots add a natural sweetness that balance the tartness of the tomatoes. Freeze any unused portions for later use. If you have fresh herbs, you may substitute 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil for the dried basil in this recipe.
