Very Veggie Spaghetti Sauce

This is chock full of vegetables with a slight hint of heat from the jalapenos – very tasty over noodles or brown rice. Angel hair pasta is a favorite of ours since it is lighter textured.

2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups marinara sauce (use your favorite or homemade)
1 cup of celery
1 cup tomato sauce
1/3 cup water
1 cup carrots, julienned
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
½ pound button mushrooms, sliced
2 medium zucchini, sliced in half moons
2 tablespoon jalapenos, jarred or fresh, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup red wine, Merlot
1 teaspoon oregano
1 ½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon granulated onion
1 pound angel hair pasta or pasta of choice

  • In large pan, sauté onion, bell peppers, carrots, garlic, mushrooms, celery and zucchini in olive oil.  Cook until tender.
  • Add tomato products to pan and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add jalapenos and seasonings.
  • Boil water in separate pot with a dash of salt and a splash of olive oil. Add pasta when water is boiling and stir often. Boil until tender or “al dente”, drain in colander.
  • Serve sauce over noodles.

Serves: 6-8

Total cooking time: 45 minutes

Looks like it would serve far more than 6-8. More like 8-12. Looks good just the same.

Substitute the olive oil with coconut oil - you will be amazed at how much nicer your meals will taste and coconut oil has a much higher tolerance to be becoming denatured when heated than olive oil.

How can something be very veggie? That's almost an overstatement. Either it's veggie or non veggie. That sort of like a pre-heated oven. Aren't there technically only two states that an oven can possibly exist in? Either it's heated or unheated. Pre-heated seems like a meaningless term. Okay I sense I've gone too far now lol.
