Great Green Pasta Sauce
So you’ve heard of red sauce and white sauce, but have you heard of green sauce? I’m not talking about pesto (I love pesto and could put it on anything) – I am talking about mean-green-eat-your-veggies pasta sauce!
You really could sneak any vegetable into this pasta sauce. For example, we had some left over broccoli that needed to be used up, so I threw it into the food processor with everything else. Kale would be another great vegetable to incorporate in this recipe. When we have kids, I’ll probably be the type of mom to sneak extra veggies into things – “Mom why are their peas in my cereal?” “Oh, those are just round mini marshmallows!”
This recipe originally suggested adding some roasted tomatoes to the finished dish, but Ryan has an aversion to that red round vegetable, so it was a no-go at my house, but I think that would be a delightful addition.
Voila, great green pasta sauce! This recipe really makes a ton of sauce, so be prepared to share or freeze some of it, or cut the recipe in half.
So, Sunday morning catch-up.. how was your week? It’s always busy around here, but last night Ryan and I went star-gazing. There were clear skies and when I was getting home from work, I looked up and had a “Wow, I forgot there are stars in the sky” moment. You don’t see a ton of stars when living in Minneapolis, but I guess that’s one thing I like about the wide open corn fields of Illinois.
