Vegetable Marinara Sauce

It’s cold out where we live and at this time of the year, it feels like winter will last forever. When the days are gray, I find myself wanted pasta. Lots of pasta that is covered in delicious vegetable marinara sauce.

This vegetable marinara is delicious, easy to make and is a great way to use all your leftover veggies. I know it is time to make marinara whenever I have an over filled vegetable drawer. You can get creative with this sauce, so just dice up your leftover vegetables and throw them in.  I hate throwing away food, so I hide lots of leftover vegetables in my sauces and soups.

This sauce is really versatile, so let your imagination run wild. Use it as a sauce for pasta or in vegetarian lasagna. It’s excellent as a dipping sauce for fried vegetables or on top of baked potatoes.
