"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." — 1st Grambo

green bell pepper, coarsely chopped - or more to taste
coarsely chopped carrot
1 (29 ounce) can
1 (28 ounce) can
dried Italian herb seasoning
red pepper flakes
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.
