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
