Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir lean ground beef, zucchinis, onion, and garlic in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Stir crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, sucanat, basil, sea salt, oregano, and black pepper into beef mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until flavors have blended, at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour for better flavor.

This was hugely satisfying over spaghetti squash. I subbed 1/2 T of honey for the called-for sucanat.

Made this recipe and the sauce is delicious! I doubled the recipe and left out the zucchini. I added fresh sliced mushrooms and meatballs. I used honey instead of sucanat. I cooked the sauce in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours and low for another hour adding in the fresh sliced mushrooms for that last hour. It was better than any store bought sauce I have ever tasted. Froze the leftovers and had it for another meal. Absolutely wonderful!
