Pasta Sauce with Veggies

This recipe comes from a dear friend. She was kind enough to make this for me during my birthday weekend when I was a lazy bum to cook :) And thats how I got the recipe from her. The one thing I love about this recipe is it has loads of vegetables and if you are not a pasta person, you could just have the sauce with some bread.


1. Tomatoes - 5 / 1 bottle Ragu tomato sauce / 1 can tomato puree

2. Celery

3. Squash

4. Onions - 1 (optional)

5. Broccoli

6. Carrots

7. Bell Pepper - 1

8. Salt

9. Pepper

10. Oregano

11. Basil

12. Paprika

13. Olive oil / vegetable oil - 2 tbsp

14. Mushrooms

Preparation Time: 10 mins

Cooking Time : 30 - 45 mins


 1. In a sauce pan, add the oil and once hot add the veggies. You might want to add the carrots and  celery first.

2. In the next round add the rest of the veggies and add mushrooms at the very end.

3. once they are cooked and fork tender , add the tomato puree and cook on medium flame for 5-7 mins.

4. Now season it according to your choice with oregano, salt, pepper, basil and paprika.

5. Depending on your taste, you can alter the consistency of the sauce by adding extra tomato puree
