Traveling the road to health, one veggie at a time.
It was spaghetti night at our house last night. When meal planning for the week, I almost always plan at least one or two pasta nights since everyone seems to love a good bowl of noodles, myself included. I came across this recipe earlier in the year and have made it several times since. Sugo Finto – The Vegetarian Version of a Meat Sauce. It’s really delicious and super nutritious….chock full of veggies that most likely your picky eaters won’t be able to detect.
Be sure to dice the veggies very tiny. You want them to form a thick chunky sauce, but you’re not making a primavera.
I sauteed the veggies in homemade veggie broth instead of oil. It works just as well without the fat and calories.
This is what the veggies look like after simmering in the red wine. Don’t worry, the alcohol cooks off.
Gorgeous sauce after simmering for about 30 minutes.
