  • Place zucchini and 4 tomatoes into the wet container of a Vitamix blender.
  • Blend, starting on low speed and gradually increase to high speed for 30-60 seconds or until a liquid is formed. (You may need to pause, scrape down the sides, then continue blending).
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (the remaining two tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and sugar) and blend until completely smooth.
  • Transfer mixture to a 4-quart saucepan and cook on medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble.
  • Once mixture begins to bubble turn heat to low and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the sauce is a deep red color.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Serve over your favorite pasta!
