Rated 5 out of 5 by Intymax from So fresh I have made this recipe about 10 times over pasta and spaghetti squash. I never quite make it the same. Sometimes we add spinach our zucchini or other veggies to the sauce mix. We love it though, always fresh and delicious tasting. My favorite way it's too add extra garlic, half a red bell pepper and cook 1 lb of mix ground beef and hot Italian sausage in the side. Combine meat, blended sauce, bay leaf, 1-2 take spoons Olive oil, and a splash of red wine in a sauce pan and low simmer for an hour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by flstc98 from Very yummy This was my first sauce and it was awesome, could use a bit more salt. I threw in some red/yellow peppers for giggles and was amazed at how hot it was after blending for 5 minutes. I did not have to heat it up on the stove at all...just pour onto my noddles. I was also surprised at how quiet the Vitamix blender was...our old blender required chainsaw hearing protection while running it. Great recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy24 from Sauce to freeze This recipe is similar to a tomato sauce I make in the summer when tomatoes and other vegetables are fresh and available. I roast tomatoes, garlic, onion, carrots, celery and sweet peppers and then blitz them all in my Vitamix. I freeze it in quart containers and use it all year long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamG from Fresh Fresh Fresh and flavorful My family loves roasted vegs. We have them year round, either from the grill or oven. This is very good and my go to. To answer the question on keeping your sauce red ( not turning brown when doing spinach), either quickly blanch your fresh spinach while boiling your pasta - 5-8 sec- and drain on paper towels, OR just adding fresh to the pasta once drained and still hot, rather than blending in Vitamix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Belectra17 from Great taste I was super excited to make my own pasta sauce using this recipe and wanted to use more veggies than tomatoes. I followed this recipe and added a small can of tomato sauce. I also added a handful of spinach. My sauce tastes great however it looks like brown gravy. How has everyone else kept the red color of their sauce?
