2. Veggie Boosted Bolognese Sauce

Mash up the meatballs to make bolognese sauce. Bolognese sauce is a good one for sneaking adding puree veggies for picky kiddos. Choose veggies with mild flavors that blend in terms of flavor, color and texture. Saute red bell pepper, onion, carrots and a small amount of cauliflower then puree in a magic bullet (or whatever you have) and add to your favorite marinara (we love Rao!) – this adds some great nutritional boost to a bolognese sauce!
