I like to make this sauce toward the end of summer when there is an abundance of vegetables needing to be used. You can freeze the sauce in pint-size jars for future use. I prefer to serve the sauce over baked spaghetti squash, but my children prefer brown rice noodles—either way it’s a nutrient-dense meal! Serve with a large green salad.

Ingredients
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onions diced
4 cloves garlic crushed
1 tablespoons Italian seasoning

1 large zucchini diced (about 2 cups)
24 ounces strained tomatoes (about 2 ½ cups)

½ cups packed fresh basil chopped
½ cups parsley chopped
freshly ground black pepper
pinches crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
