That's great!

I can get in my red and orange at the same time, and use up some of my carrots!

I think I stopped putting carrots in my tomato sauce at one point because one of my kids didn't like them. However, my kids are older now. (They used to eat a lot of raw carrots, so I didn't mind them not eating cooked ones.)

Red foods are a good source of lycopenes.

Here's a link for All you wanted to know about lycopene and more...

www.cancer.org/docroot/ETO/content/E

I trust this source. It's the American Cancer Society.

Do you have any good cheap red recipes to share?
