sun dried tomato and veggie pasta sauce

Because of my blood pressure I rely on the garlic and Italian seasoning for the flavor but if you do want to add salt make sure to taste it first so it doesn't overwhelm the sun-dried tomato flavor. The carrots and celery give it a meaty mouthfeel so it's a good meal for when vegans and carnivores get together! I like this with whole wheat pasta.
