      1. Excellent recipe Samira Mam. I made a huge batch and freezing 70% of it. If we have this sauce, making pasta or pizza will be a breeze. I sneaked in carrots and extra beets too so the colour was awesome. Thank you so much again Mam.

        1. My pleasure dear. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful feedback. Dear, i also have one recipe of Pasta Sauce in Arrabiata pasta where i have added loads of veggies including bottle gourd and many other in the pasta sauce. Just one of the many ways to include veggies in our diet. Do check it out, you might like it too.

        1. Hi,
          Beetroot is added just to enhance the red colour of the sauce. It has nothing to do with the taste si you can easily skip this. Though, you can add red pepper, this also improves the taste as well as colour.
