WFMW: Homemade Pasta Sauce...



Thankfully, my children don't read this blog (yet), because if they did, my secret would be out. What's the secret? Oh, just that I sneak in about seven day's worth of vegetable servings to my homemade pasta sauce!!

It's easy: I just get some carrots, zucchini, and sometimes squash. You have to be careful with yellow squash, though, because too much of it will turn your pasta sauce a suspicious pale color, and we don't want anyone (especially kids) asking questions, right?

Cut up your veggies and steam until fork-tender. Then put all into a blender or food processor and puree. Simply add to the simmering pot of pasta sauce and, voila! Vitamins A galore!

Head on over to see other great tips!

Great tip! My husband hates zucchini, eggplant, and cooked onions--but he gobbles the marinara sauce I add a puree of all three to! I do tell him I'm doing it--otherwise he'll find a way to sneak mayonnaise (YUCK!) into something he makes for me!
 
Clever, clever girl....

I like the sneaky mother-love at work here, wanting the best while keeping the peace!
 
mmm...sounds delish!
 
A blender! Gotta get me one of those.
 
I MIGHT just have to try it!
