Powered Up Pasta Sauce


   Serving Size:
1/4 cup sauce is vegetable for a 3-5 year old at lunch/supper.


4 cups sauce




2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 c. minced onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 c. squash puree
1 (28 oz.) can diced tomato(es)
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
ground pepper, to taste

Heat oil over medium heat in large saucepan. Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent but not brown, stirring occasionally. Mix in the squash, tomatoes, tomato paste and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes until sauce thickens. Cooked meat (hamburger, ground turkey etc.) can be added before serving. Note: for a smoother sauce, puree with a handheld blender in the saucepan or blend tomatoes in a blender or food processor prior to adding to the saucepan. Serve with your favorite cooked pasta.
