Vermicelli with Chunky Garden Vegetable Sauce

This is a great quick lunch or dinner recipe, and is quite low calorie for those trying to eat a bit lighter. We used our quick Chunky Garden Vegetable sauce, which is included in the recipe below, but you can use this with leftover garden vegetable sauce if you've prepared it ahead of time. Just boil the noodles and you're on your way.
