I am sending this post also for Blogging Marathon #58. I am happy to state that I experimented with this traditional red sauce by adding carrots to make it more healthy for Abi and it worked! For lots of exciting other recipes check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#58.
