Default Italian red gravy

My uncle Shea married the only other Italian woman in the family. He used to call marinara red gravy
Aunt Lea's 3/2/1 Marinara:
3 cans tomatoes diced
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 small onion diced
1 glove garlic minced
1/2 carrot diced/ minced
Oregano 1/4 teaspoon
Basil 1/8 teaspoon
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all tomato products in pot, I like a smooth marinara so I Take a mixer/blender to it while in the pot, add spices
In pan with two tablespoons of olive oil flash cook the onion garlic and carrot,
Add to sauce. At this time I use the hand mixer again
Simmer two hours tasting and stirring occasionally.
If you want add the already grilled out door Italian sausage to the sauce at this point

Or
My recipe:
With one pound of lean hamburger, 1/2 cup bread crumb, one egg, some onion finely diced and two tablespoons of.... Ricotta cheese, salt pepper and a pinch of oregano, to egg add a small amount of worchester sauce, a dash of tobasco make meatballs,
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes turning over at 20 minutes

Place meatballs in sauce

Or both

Made mine with meatballs tonight, salad and fresh ground coffee.
I'm stuffed

This batch goes two weeks, the sauce is in the chicken parmesan sandwiches and meatball subs too.

So one afternoon yields two weeks of meals.

Just can't do that.... I looked in the pantry today and was stunned to see a tomato soup can in there.... I'm thinking it's been there 9 to 10 years...
I will throw a sub together, heat up some pot roast, or pulled pork..
Sometimes I bypass lunch, and dinner will be A slice of pumpkin pie and some coffee. Other times it's Italian night and I'll do the pasta, meat and salad route,
Just heat up what I want, make some pasta and put together a salad...
Easy peasey

I love vienna sausages but I've stopped eating processed food. It's really easy to do, just picture in your mind the people who are processing the food.
