This is something my daughter does to get her boys to eat more vegetables. It sure works for her...should work for you!

  • 12 cup carrot, sliced thin

I had never thought of using veggies like these in spagetti sauce,but then I thought"why the heck not?" I had some leftover cooked peas and carrots in the fridge so I used them up.This is a very nice recipe,will make it again! Thanks Happy Harry!

I gave this five stars for adaptability. I didn't use canned sauce. I used my homemade sauce but I followed the blending directions and used carrots, celery, onion and bell peppers. My four super picky kids all had seconds. What a grand idea. I will be trying this idea on many sauces. Thanks Happy.
