    Deb Wolf's Note:

    Quick, easy, low-calorie and very low fat. We like filling comfort-style entrees. This is one of my DH's favorites. We love to garden and this recipe grew out of our abundant produce. It uses lots of fresh veggies, and portion sizes are large, so you're eating big as well as eating good. It's also very versatile; add in whatever veggies you have on hand, use any kind of pasta. It's also very good over polenta.

      I made one inadvertant mistake. Just as dinner was ready to serve, Dh had a business call so I let the sauce simmer until he finished. BIG mistake. This sauce just gets watery as it cooks, much better to serve with the timing the recipe calls for. I tasted it when it was ready and it was excellent. I should have eaten alone.

      Wow, it's hard to believe there's no oil or butter in this because it was truly scrumptious. I got all my vegetables from the farmers market so it was even better. Thank you.

      This was very tasty, and suprisingly easy to make even with all of the vegetables that needed chopping. I like that the vegetables are added to the recipe in steps. I just started chopping, and as one ingredient was added to the pan, I started chopping the next. My turkey sausage links were mild, not hot so I added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauce to compensate. I love when healthy tastes this good.
