I love making pasta sauces and adding hidden veggies! This turkey bolognese has puréed butternut squash and tomatoes. It’s a perfect family meal and can be used with any whole wheat noodles or even over other veggies like eggplant.

  • 1/2 bottle low sugar tomato sauce
  • 1 small can tomato purée with no added sugar
  • 1/2 butternut, cubed and steamed
