What to feed hungry kids?

With a house full of hungry kids this weekend, I made up a large batch of the GARDEN FRESH MEATBALLS then came up with this great sauce to top them, a meatless version of the SPAGHETTI SAUCE recipe.  I found myself without zucchini or ground turkey, so for the meatballs I substituted a yellow squash and 2 pounds of ground beef and did not add any almond meal.  Paleo is so versatile!  I plan on taking some of the meatballs (without sauce) to the pool to get some protein and veggies into my hungry little swimmers!

Meatless Spaghetti Sauce

28 ounce can diced tomatoes (with juice)

1 tsp sea salt

2 T dried basil

dash cayenne

splash of red wine

1/2 red onion

3-4 garlic cloves, smashed

1/2 c fresh flat leaf parsley

3 T fresh rosemary

small can tomato paste

bay leaf

Combine all ingredients except bay leaf and tomato paste in food processor and process until everything is well combined.  Pour mixture into medium sauce pan over low heat and add the bay leaf and the tomato paste.  Bring to a low simmer and cook until the paste is well incorporated and the sauce is the desired consistency.  Remove the bay leaf before serving.
