It sounds weird, but if you want to sweeten a spaghetti sauce add diced carrots to it. My husband makes his sauce this way it comes out really tasty.
I love carrots, too. I have to ask – Does your wife like carrot cake? If she hates carrots so much she doesn't like carrot cake, I feel sorry for her.I love carrots, but my wife hates them. If she thought there were carrots in something I made, she would divorce me. I may have to try this though. It would be one way to increase our consumption of beta carotene. I love carrots and eat the small ones all of the time for snacks.
