This is a great recipe from a coworker, who got it from a Health Canada publication like 20 years ago. Kids like it, and if there are leftovers (rarely!) simmer it down and add a little butter and you have a great, healthy pasta sauce.

This was pretty good, but I think it needs more carrots and less water. I am looking forward to tasting it over pasta tomorrow night.

Super easy and a nice flavor. I'd probably add more carrots and less Tarragon next time. My kids gave it a thumbs down - they are getting pickier by the day. Oh well, if dad likes it, it will be a do-over!
