Crockpot Bolognese Sauce

One of my husbands favorite foods is Spaghetti with meat sauce, therefore over the years I have experimented with various recipes to find our favorite one. Here it is. Great flavor and what I like to call "hidden" veggies for the kids.  I love it even more that it's in the crockpot. Throw it in in the morning and by dinner time you have a fabulous meal ready. 

1 Tbs. virgin olive oil
1 white onion, diced
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. tomato paste
1 c. water
1 (28 oz) can diced tomato
1 (15 oz) can tomato puree
1 c. carrots, grated
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
2 Tbs dried italian herbs
1 bay leaf

Heat olive oil in saute pan. Add onions and saute for about 4 minutes. Add meat and 1 tsp salt and cook for 5 more minutes, breaking up meat as it cooks. Put meat mixture in crockpot. Whisk 2 Tbs tomato paste into 1 c water. Add to pot along with remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over your favorite pasta (I use low carb spaghetti).
