A cousin of mine in Minnesota was the first one in our family to make this meatless spaghetti sauce. She passed down the recipe to various relatives over the years, and it’s become a mainstay in my family. With its veggies and great garlic and herb flavor, you don’t miss the meat in this thick sauce.

We eliminated the olives & substituted 1 can southwestern diced tomatoes (instead of 1 big can plain diced tomatoes) to give it some zip. Yummy!

I eliminated the celery, because we don't like it in sauce. Use Kosher salt. You need less this way,

There are just 2 of us, I imagine this would freeze or keep in the fridge. We live in our RV so no room for large crowds, but may use for potlucks.

Very good! I left out the black olives( hubby doesn't like them) and added some sugar as we like our pasta sauce on the sweeter side.Sprinkle with fresh parsley. Great no -meat meal!
