Hidden Veggie Spaghetti

I know many of you parents out there struggle, as I do, with getting your kiddos to eat a variety of veggies. Well, here's a simple and tasty way to sneak some of those veggies right into dinner! My 4-year-old usually eats about 3 bowls of this :) Enjoy!

Hidden Veggie Spaghetti
1 spaghetti squash (cooking instructions)

1/2 onion, coarsely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic
1/2 bell pepper, seeded & coarsely chopped
1 carrot, peeled & coarsely chopped
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 14.5oz can Italian diced or stewed tomatoes
Salt & pepper
1-2 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried thyme

1. While squash is baking blend the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and carrot in a food processor until finely chopped. Pour into large skillet on medium heat until bubbling, add tomato sauce and Italian tomatoes, season to your liking and bring sauce to a simmer. Let simmer at least 30 minutes, stirring often, before serving.
2. Once the squash is cooked (tender when poked with a fork), remove from oven and carefully use a fork to scrape out the "noodles". Top with sauce & enjoy!

-Serves about 4.
