This fresh vegetable sauce can be used in place of other sauces, such as traditional spaghetti sauce. It has a sweet fresh taste to it, but is still recognizable as a tomato product. My recommended use is over pasta or with a meat product. In my opinion the sauce is relatively filling and not to be considered a light meal.

Continue simmering and stirring occasionally until the mixture has reduced to a sauce like consistency, 10 to 15 minutes.n
