Freedom's homemade spaghetti sauce

Submitted by: WARMFEATHER

Introduction

As with most of my recipes this makes a HUGE batch. I feed 5 and like to have leftovers to either freeze or eat for lunch the next day. This recipe makes about 18 one cup servings. this recipe is very versitile, you could add or reduce the veggies as you like, even use no sodium tomato sauce(this is calculated with sodium). since the veggies are chopped up so fine, picky kids will barely notice them, so this is kid friendly also.
