READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by internetnut

I have not tried this recipe. I got it from Cornell Cooperative Extension. You'll be amazed at how many uses you will find for this inexpensive vegetarian sauce. Use it for lasagna, as a sauce over chicken,or with ground beef as a traditional sauce for spaghetti. The sauce freezes well.

Love that this is full of vegetables. Unfortunately my toddler son won't eat it, but DH and I liked it. Got distracted by said son and forgot to add the salt and pepper. Had to add more spices, added another can of tomatoes and a full 15 oz can of tomato sauce. Also had to puree it up so DH wouldn't know about the veggies ;) Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
