This is just a good, simple, fresh sauce to serve over pasta (we like whole-wheat angel hair). I think I got this from Eating Well, but I'm not sure. **Note: The original recipe did not call for the tomato sauce, but after making it, DH and I both felt it needed the sauce to coat the pasta, as the veggies alone were just chunky with no sauciness. The veggies give it a great flavor.
