No added sugar here. This isn't a sweet sauce, but a very hearty sauce. I found this in Valentine Treats book. My family liked this sauce and I liked the fact I was getting veggies into our diets. When I made this sauce I used ground chicken/turkey sausage, I used fine chopped petite baby carrots, I was out of tomato juice so I used tomato sauce, and I substituted water for the red table wine.
