Butternut Spaghetti Sauce

We have several family members and friends that are vegetarian, and when they are going to be here for dinner I like to make something real special for them.  This Butternut Spaghetti Sauce is a recipe that I developed just for them and they all love it. We grow squash, tomatoes and onions in our garden along with many herbs from our Herb Garden, this is truly a Garden to Table dish.  I recently made it for the Youth Group Spaghetti Supper for their Veggie Sauce, there was none left.  I sure hope that you enjoy the sauce.

  1. Hi Miz Helen,
    Your butternut sauce looks delicious! So full of flavour from all the wonderful ingredients and all that lovely produce from your garden! I'm so envious!
    Hope you have great week!

  2. Looks delicious! I'm not surprised it all disappeared!

  3. Miz Helen it looks AMAZING !!
    Just looking at this photos and I'm already hungry
    It's perfect for me as I'm a vegetarian :)

  4. Roasting them is such a great way to add that depth!

  5. I've just received two butternut squash in my organic vegetable box so this is perfect timing! I really like the sound of this delicious vegetarian spaghetti sauce, Miz Helen.

  6. Yum! I think I need to add butternut squash to my seed order this year! I never quite know what to do with squash, but I think this looks super delicious-- I totally pinned this for harvest time!

    (I found you through Freedom Fridays, btw!)

    thanks for sharing with us at the wednesday fresh foods link up. i look forward to seeing what other seasonal & real/whole food posts you have for us next week!! xo, kristy

  15. This was very good, especially with all the veggies other than tomatoes, which I think gives it a special depth of flavor. However, I did not use fresh tomatoes. I would like to try it again using them but am intimidated by how you peel them and get rid of the seeds. Some advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for this recipe!

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      The best & easiest way to peel a tomato, is to drop it into boiling water in a stew pan, let it boil for about 1 minute. Remove the tomato and place it in ice water with ice cubes. The skin will begin to peel up and it will peel right off. Slice the tomato open and squeeze the seeds out, then you can chop or dice the tomato.
      I am happy that you enjoyed the recipe and thanks so much for stopping by.

    2. Thanks Miz Helen for the easy simple method! I was afraid it would be complicated, ha ha!
