Summer pasta sauce

It's summer time and veggies are flowing in. I love it. This recipe came about a few years ago when we were buried under zucchini and yellow squash. It is so delicious and healthy. It is all veggies but my meat and potatoes husband and 12 year-old stepson both love it.

1  can crushed tomatoes with basil
1 small yellow onion-diced
2 cloves garlic-diced
1 small yellow squash-chopped into bite size pieces
1 small zucchini-chopped into bite size pieces
3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
 olive oil

In a deep pan, heat olive oil and sautee onions, garlic, squash, zucchini and mushrooms until tender. About 10 minutes.

Add tomatoes and and the red flakes and simmer 10 more minutes.

That's it! The sauce is done. Usually, I serve this over spaghetti but this day I was making lunches for the week and wanted too add some protein so I put it over tortellini.

So healthy. So delicious.
