“My little one's been rebelling against eating meat, so I decided to indulge her with a Veggie Meat Sauce...and it came out wonderful! The seasonings in this sauce a very adjustable according to your tastes. My family tends to like their sauces on the sweet side. And the recipe makes plenty to freeze for next time! Could also be adapted for the crock pot.”
