Step by step

  1. Prepare your veggies: chop the tomatoes and give it a quick blend in a blender or food processor. Finely chop the onion and celery. Grate the zucchini and carrot.
  2. Next, heat the oil in a pot, and add the onion and celery. Cook on a low heat, while stirring occasionally until soft (about 5 minutes.)
  3. Next, add the garlic, zucchini and carrots and stir for another 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, herbs, and salt and pepper. Increase the heat to medium until it boils, then lower the heat and leave to simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. When your sauce is done simmering, use a handheld blender to make it creamy and smooth. ( You can also use your regular blender or food processor.)
  6. Optional: you may stir in a little cream for a richer and creamier consistency.
  7. Serve on your kids' favourite pasta.
