    Domestic Goddess's Note:

    This is a delicious, hearty, meatless spaghetti sauce. I like to add garden fresh vegetables to the sauce. I have used spaghetti sauce which I've purchased from Aldi's, (2-26 oz. jars of Mama Cozzi Traditional Premium Spaghetii Sauce), as well as, sauce which I've purchased from Sam's Club (2-32 oz. jars Classico Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce), and both tasted great! If you choose to add the red pepper flakes, I have found the 1/2 teaspoon does make the sauce a bit spicy, so if you prefer your sauce less spicy, you may want to add less, or omit it all together.

    8. 8
      *Note: 10/19/09 Today I made this sauce, but with a few modifications. Instead of adding canned mushrooms, I sautéed 8-ounces of fresh, sliced, mushrooms, in a seperate skillet along with 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons of butter. I cooked the mushrooms over a medium-high heat for about 6-7 minutes. I also cut the zucchini and bell peppers into 3/4-inch pieces. I sauted the zucchini along with the carrots and onion, for 7 minutes, and after I added the bell peppers, I then added a 3/4 teaspoon of the red pepper flakes, and I sauted the entire vegetables for 6 to 8 minutes more. Finally I added the cooked mushrooms, the 2 jars of pasta sauce, and I threw in a pound of already cooked Italian meatballs, and simmered the sauce with the meatballs, while I cooked the spaghetti. This made a large pot full (to feed more than 6 people), and the sauce was nice and thick.
