“I say replace sugar with carrots in any tomato recipe. Additional veggies are a sneaky way to get them into the kids. Add olive oil near end of cooking to preserve its flavor.”

Directions

  1. Place green bell pepper, carrot, and garlic cloves into a food processor and pulse a few times until the vegetables are very finely chopped.
  2. Transfer chopped vegetables into a large saucepan. Stir in tomato puree, crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, basil, and red pepper flakes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered until sauce has thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in olive oil and simmer 1 to 2 more minutes. Sauce may be refrigerated up to 1 week.

My daughter enjoyed this but we don't have to sneak veggies into her foods. It is a savory sauce since it has no added sugar, and I liked that. It makes a lot and would be a good start to a spaghetti sauce also.

Just an additional note: Whenever I add dried Italian Seasoning to a recipe, I put it into the palm of my hand & rub it as I put it in. I feel this releases additional flavor.

It was a good recipe but out of the two or three recipes I used to put my pizza together with none of them said I should PAM the pan first and my pizza stuck to the pan.
