Spaghetti Sauce with Extra Vegetables

I have been inspired by Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and a couple cooking classes that I have taken to cook more from scratch. It really isn't that hard, and it provides a great opportunity to make it healthier.

Last night we had Spaghetti with Extra Vegetable Sauce.

Warm butternut squash in the microwave, then puree. Puree tomatoes in the can with an immersion blender. Add squash, tomatoes and spices to the saucepan.
