Spaghetti is the perfect dish to serve a big group or even just a regular-sized family, especially when you’ve got a variety of taste preferences in the group. The recipe below is a delicious vegetarian version loaded with vegetables. Even a veggie-hating picky eater is sure to love this one.
This recipe includes an assortment of sweet vegetables that are fairly easy to “hide” in the sauce, but you can add other vegetables as you see fit. I like to add 1-inch pieces of asparagus, diced zucchini or yellow squash, and/or thinly sliced fennel to mine.
