Make-your-own pasta sauce (recipe) / food waste / and getting veg into kids

Recipe - Hope this is helpful for make-your-own pasta sauce / food waste / and getting veg into kids.

Did my food shop today. At the bottom of the fridge drawer were bits of veg definitely beyond their best and floppy. So I chopped into smallish pieces - 2 carrots, 1 courgette, 1 pepper, 3 small sticks of celery, 3/4 red onion (other 1/4 going soft) mixed with a bit of oil, plus salt and pepper, added 3 garlic cloves in their skins and roasted for about 20 mins till soft and getting darker round the edges. Then I squeezed the garlic out of its skin and blitzed it with 1 tin of toms and 1 carton of passata plus a sprinkle of dried mix herbs. It’s made just over 1.5 litres of sauce which I’ve put in bags for the freezer - 4 generous portions in each. It’s thicker than I usually have so think you could add another tin or carton to loosen it and stretch it even further-I’ll do that when I use.
