"Fresh roma tomatoes are gently simmered with zucchini, green and red bell pepper, mushrooms and herbs for a savory meatless spaghetti sauce. The addition of ricotta cheese, just before serving, makes the sauce nice and rich." — Inspired by Home Cooks

Excellent sauce! Only changes I made: I did not use Riccota(will try next time) and I used regular brown sugar. Very rich complex taste , best sauce from this site for now, although takes time, but well worth it.
EDIT: Try blending the tomatoes in a blender intead of smashing them for a smoother sauce. Then mix the paste in. Hope it helps! I wish this sauce had pics because if it had I wouldn't have tried it. I prefer a more smoother sauce to where I can taste the sauce on my noodles. With this sauce it more of a thicker veggie substance. The spices seemed a bit much so I did decrease on table of the oregano and am so glad I did! I think it actually needed a little less then that. NOTE: If you don't have Roma Tomatoes then be aware that they are by no means a large tomatoe, they are between small and med. size. Mash the tomatoes up good. The sauce was ok. But will definatly be looking for another sauce. Thanks for the recipe though. It was something to try!
Very Good, 1 tip I was told by a neighbor, if you are using fresh tomatoes, place in a brown paper bag the night before and freeze. Let them start thawing in the sink and run under warm water and if they are ripe they are very easy to peal if they are still a little green they are a little harder and then you do not have boil the water and let them cool. Really enjoyed.
This is the best spaghetti sauce I have ever had! It's deliciously rich and the flavors burst in your mouth. Absolutely recommend it - it's amazing!
First, my changes. Added 1/2 can of olives, used only red bell pepper and omitted the sugar and dairy. (allergic to them) And with those few changes, I had pasta sauce to RAVE about! It was fantastic!! Thank you so much, this is keeper! My first time making sauce from scratch, and I am not going back to canned-this sauce rocks!
This sauce was amazing! I didn't have zucchini, don't like mushrooms, used garlic powder instead of garlic, used tomato sauce instead of paste, didn't add the bay leaf or the ricotta, used a variety of tomotoes from the garden and it was just fantastic! Definitely worth the time, I will be making this again.
OMG this is so fabulous! I used fresh vegetables and tomatoes from my garden. So I did not use roma tomatoes, I used beefsteak tomatoes. I omitted the red bell pepper. This is the best spaghetti sauce I've ever had. Making this again for sure!
A really nice spaghetti sauce. Forgot the ricotta, added some meatballs. Found the sauce a little sweet but remembering the ricotta would probably halp balance that out. Love the fresh ingredients and no added salt.
