Add to cooking veggie mix.
Open & dump all of those cans pictured above in the pot.
- 2 cans Campbell's Cream of Mushroom

Divide into 1-2 qt batches, ziploc & freeze. I use a regular mouth canning funnel to get the sauce into bag.
Meat is optional. A dear friend of mine prefers this sauce without meat.
The Rock Star prefers a sweet red sauce. He even asked me to put sugar in my red sauce early in our marriage. Huh?!?! Am I serving this in a elementary school cafeteria? No. So I added carrots and zucchini to sweeten the sauce. He loves it. The Genius Brother thinks that this sauce is a meal by itself. I agree.
