This recipe will be a great base to any sauce ~ I made exactly as written...... UMMM WAIT... No I didn't! I grated the Zucchini and Celery, so as it would make it easier to hide from DH, and easier to hand blend later on for other recipes!.... Read more

Review by LindasBusyKitchen

I made half a batch as a trial run - big mistake I should have doubled it! It makes a wonderful base for spaghetti sauce, I'm sure it will be great on pizza too! Alls good as have plenty of zucchini and tomatoes to go! Made as posted excepting we ate it fresh. Will definitely be making and freezing packages to enjoy a bit of summer during our long cold winter months!
