An easy meat sauce you can make on any weeknight dinner to get cozy with, or a perfect meal prep option too! Toss it over pasta, zoodles, greens, or stuff it in a squash :) - the possibilities are endless.
Heat a large skillet over medium and add olive oil, after a couple of minutes when the oil is shimmering, add the shallots for a few minutes until soft.
Next, add the garlic over top and stir well to continue softening with onions.
Add the chopped celery and carrots next and continue to stir for another 5 minutes or so.
Then add the meat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon into smaller pieces, continue to sauté until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Add tomatoes, paste, and basil and slightly lower the heat so the sauce can thicken, season again with salt and pepper.
Allow this to simmer for approx. 15 mins or more until well combined and thick. If you like a thinner sauce, add a little water until you have the desired consistency and finish with cheese or nutritional yeast if using. Serve on top of pasta or veggies and garnish with more basil!
