Primavera Sauce

Submitted by: GRADXY

Introduction

Good on pasta, but works equally well on some meats. A good go-to, healthy, throw in what you have tomato sauce. Also delicious!

Makes 7 or so servings, between 3/4 and 1 cup.

Ingredients

    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    5 zucchini (or combine some zucchini with some other squash) chopped
    3 carrots, chopped
    2 cans tomatoes
    1 tsp basil
    1 tsp oregano
    salt and pepper to taste (I use cayenne pepper, too, because we like a little spice)

Directions

Chop veggies. Heat olive oil in a good-sized wok or pan.

Sauté garlic and onion about 2 minutes, until translucent (you can tell they're ready by the smell).

Add in zucchini/squash and carrots. Saute five more minutes.

Add in two large cans tomatoes, and non-salt and pepper seasonings. Heat over medium-high heat until bubbling.

Allow to simmer 15-20 minutes, add in salt and peppers last, so that they don't change as the volume reduces. If you prefer, you can purée the sauce with a stick blender or in a regular blender, until you get the texture you prefer. I like having veggie chunks, so don't always bother.


Serve over/with whatever you desire.
