Very Veggie Pasta Sauce

This is sort of the lazy mama version of making your own sauce from scratch, and it allows you to get a hefty serving of veggies into your kiddos. Kicks the nutritional value up a notch.

1 white onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1 can stewed diced tomatoes (i use no added sodium)
1 head of broccoli, finely diced
2 sweet bell peppers (red, yellow or orange), diced
2 carrots, diced
1 jar of favorite organic pasta sauce

1. Saute onion and garlic in a couple tablespoons of olive oil. Add turkey and brown completely.
2. Add all the veggies and saute. Season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
3. Pour stewed tomatoes and jar of pasta sauce into crock pot, and then add your turkey & veggie mixture. Stir thoroughly and cook on low until ready to serve over pasta of your choice.
*I like to toss a couple bay leaves into the sauce while it cooks for added flavor.

  1. I've found for the truly picky eaters, if you add veggie purees they never know. I've gotten away with carrots & broccoli. I've done spinach before, but it changes the color of the sauce a bit. They ate it, but with reservations.
