    Everybody who cooks has a great spaghetti sauce. This is mine, after years of perfection. It's lowfat, It's vegetarian, It's deep, rich, and amazingly tasty. This is it. Oh: choose your pasta well! Artichoke, whole wheat and Italian semolina go best...spinach? Not so much.


    • Fresh Garlic or Garlic powder
    • One large onion or dried onion bits
    • Italian Seasoning
    • Olive oil
    • 1 yellow summer squash,grated
    • 1 zucchini, grated
    • 48-72 ounces of pasta sauce or tomato sauce
    • Molasses
    • Optional: Mushrooms and/or Olives


    1. In a iron skillet, over a medium heat, heat your olive oil, adding Italian seasoning, and garlic of whatever form you have.
    2. If using dried onions, add here.
    3. If using fresh chopped onions, let the spices sit in the heating oil for 5-7 minutes and then saute onions in heated oil until clear.
    4. Add grated Zucchini and Yellow Squash, saute 5 -7 minutes.
    5. If using mushrooms, ad here and saute another 2 minutes or so.
    6. Add tomato sauce, and cover while ingredients mix and simmer for 5-10 minutes
    7. Add olives if desired
    8. Drizzle approximately 4 Tablespoons of molasses into the sauce. This cuts the acid and gives it a deeper, sweeter flavor.
    9. Simmer for 10 min more
    10. Serve!
    11. (I recommend doubling it, as there probably will be little leftovers, if there is, this freezes well)

      I like the sound of this... it's different from the usual with meat and would give it a try.
