  • 2 teaspoons crushed dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons crushed dried basil
  • pinch white pepper (optional)
  • 1 large red pepper, cut in 1-inch strips
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

In medium saucepan, cook onion and garlic in 2 tbsp. broth 5-7 minutes or until softened, over medium high heat. Add tomato sauce, honey, oregano, basil and white pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer gently for 20 minutes. In skillet or wok, combine red pepper, mushrooms, squash, carrots, broccoli and 2 tbsp. each balsamic vinegar and broth.
