Hidden Veggie Pasta Sauce

If you are like me, you would love to have your kids eat more vegetables. I try not to force it at my dinner table, but it is obvious my girls don’t like them! I see some kids pounding cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers and think, “where did I go wrong?” Serves me right for thinking I was “mom of the year” by homemaking Maya’s baby food and thinking she would be a good eater. Pride comes before a fall I guess. So if you are a mom like me, try this awesome sauce my mom gave to my girls that has lots of vegetables “hidden” inside. My girls ate it up and kept asking for more. I guarantee your kids will like it. And if not, no judgement from me…..

Thanks for the recipe Nana!

    Where did you go wrong you ask……for starters look at the guy you married. Only greens on his dinner plate are gummy bears and skittles.
