Chunky Vegetable – Sausage Pasta Sauce

Last week, I cleaned out my corner appliance cabinet. It’s in this weird shape that makes it a good place to store appliances. While cleaning it out, I pulled out my food processor and used it more faithfully.

Today I decided to make spaghetti for supper, a family favorite. I made a sauce of fire-roasted tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, onions, and sausage and then served it over whole wheat pasta. Hubby gave it two thumbs up and then went back for seconds. The Imaginative One doesn’t like sauce, so he didn’t want to try it.
