My family loves this zesty meatless sauce served over bow tie pasta. When tomatoes and carrots are ripe and plentiful, I double the recipe and store it in the freezer for future use.

"This was good. The flavor was even better the next day! I love all the fresh ingredients. I actually threw everything in the food processor then straight into the pan and just cooked everything together due to lack of time and it still turned out good."

"Very good but carrot flavor was a little too strong. Next time I would add only 1-2 carrots."
