A hearty, robust vegetable pasta sauce where no vegetables are in sight! Excellent for the fussy toddler or child that loves pasta with comforting tomato sauce. The hidden vegetable component in this sauce makes life easier for you and your children. It’s a win-win situation, where you are providing them with their vegetable intake and they are simply getting their lovely tomato pasta sauce and penne!
