This is a simple and fast tomato sauce that utilizes the USDA frozen peppers and onions and butternut squash to create a tasty vegan base sauce that can be used in a variety of applications from simmering our Sicilian-inspired meatballs to the base for our Baked Pastitsio Penne. We roast the peppers and onions to add flavor and use butternut squash puree as a natural substitute for sugar and to add a velvety texture.
