Hide Those Veggies Mom Sauce

It is garden time and I like to use what I can from the garden to make up a winter storage of good foods. Everyone grows an abundance even if they have 1 plant!, so if your neighbors are not sneaking onto your porch in the dead of night to leave these morsels, then go steal away with some from their garden. Your neighbors will be glad to share, I know I am. Zucchini’s are so easy to grow but they multiply quickly! One way to get my kids to eat their spinach and veggies was to hide it in the sauce. Anyway I could! For the Dining on a Dollar Contest, ZUCCHINI was the main ingredient and I have taken to using this as a filler in many items to make it healthier. Rich in vitamins and potassium it is a great source for your little athletes and LOW in calories. I used chunks of zucchini about 1 in x 2 inches but if you really want to hide the zukes, shred them and they melt into the sauce. I like a chunky version myself.I hope you enjoy this easy to make and cost efficient recipe.
