I don’t normally make spaghetti sauce from scratch instead opting to buy the already-made-ones at the store as they are quick in a pinch.
However, I do like to accent the store bought spaghetti sauce with fresh vegetables.
Normally I add broccoli, green pepper, onions and carrots. But you can add whatever you like.
First I add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a medium sized skillet. I wait until the oil is warm and then add the fresh vegetables. I keep stirring until the vegetables are cooked. If you want crisper onions though, you can add them at a later time once the other vegetables are cooked.
Once the vegetables are cooked, I add the spaghetti sauce and stir to get everything mixed together.
Then, I add the sauce to the cooked spaghetti and mix it all up.
It seems simple enough, but I never would have thought of doing it until a friend of mine made it this way.
Chockful of vitamins.
I hope you try this helpful tip if you aren’t already doing it.
