Hidden Veggie Spaghetti Sauce

Guess how many different veggies are in this sauce:


Did you guess? What did you say? Two? Three?

Would you believe me if I said there are over 6 different types of veggies in this sauce? No? Okay, I show you. Tomatoes are a given (technically a fruit, but we'll count that as 1). Then mushrooms in the can of spaghetti sauce I used (2), spinach (3), carrots (4), onions (5) and red peppers (6). That's right, 6 veggies! Talk about super food! I just blended the sauce with fresh spinach (great way to use spinach that is too wilted for a salad!) and carrots, then added red pepper and onion to the sauce. Easy way to make store-bought sauce taste homemade, too! Flavorful spaghetti sauce is will hide almost any vegetable: zucchini, broccoli, squash, celery, etc. No one will know!

Plus, I used ground turkey in the sauce AND Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta, which has calcium, vitamin D, and fiber in it. What a healthy way to eat spaghetti! If you have a veggie-hater in your house, try this next time!
