Homemade Meaty Pasta Sauce

My family LOVES this Protein Pasta Sauce! It has high-protein and TONS of vegetables. Freeze it and use it when you need too!


  • 1lb - 1+1/2lbs | Lean Ground Beef
  • 1/2 Cup | Natural Nutralean
  • 2 Cups | Low Sugar Tomato Basil Sauce
  • 1.5 Cups | Grated Carrot & Zucchini
  • To Taste | Orange, Red, & Green Peppers
  • To Taste | Sliced Mushrooms & Diced White Onion



  1. Brown the meat.
  2. Add tomato sauce and meat to pot.
  3. Add Carrots & Zucchini.
  4. Add in peppers.
  5. Add in to taste ingredients.
  6. Simmer on Med/Low heat for 45-60 min, If the sauce is too dry, add more tomato sauce or diced tomatoes.
  7. Put the protein in when you're close to serving, it will thicken up nicely.

*NOTE | Don't put the protein in before, or you'll overcook it.
