Here is a quick and easy change up for pasta dishes!! It’s a nice change from the old red pasta sauce! And it’s full of nourishment, and not full of sugar and preservatives like many pre- made sauces on the grocery store shelves! Make extra and keep it in the fridge for a few recipes in the same week or over a training weekend! It’s DELICIOUS!
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 2 medium carrots peeled and chopped
- 3 celery stalks chopped
- 4 medium zucchini, skin on and chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic minced
- pepper to taste
- Add olive oil to a pot and saute onion, celery and carrots until translucent. Add zucchini, garlic, salt, pepper and cook until soft. Once the vegetables have cooked down blend until smooth (I use an immersion blender and do it right in the pot!) and pour over your pasta. You can garnish with some fresh parsley and a pinch of parm cheese for a fantastic creamy and veggie filled pasta sauce.
Even the kids will love this one! Enjoy!
