Undercover veggies

Everyone loves a great bowl of spaghetti.  This make-ahead sauce is packed with disguised veggies that even picky carnivores enjoy. Quantities do not need to be precise.  Add or subtract ingredients as you please. You can cook the sauce for an hour, or if your have the time leave it on the stove for four hours, it will just get better. Use homemade roasted peppers or jarred roasted peppers. I make a huge batch of sauce and freeze meal-size portions in plastic bags for quick future meals.

Suitable for gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo eaters

This sauce is gluten-free, dairy-free and good for paleo eaters. Just avoid serving with wheat pasta and parmesan cheese for people with these dietary restrictions. Serve with gluten-free pasta, or substitute zoodles or spaghetti squash for pasta.
