Pasta + sauce = easy dinner. But those jarred sauces are full of sodium, as well as vegetables that have been treated enough to give them a shelf life. Not to mention, they’re usually pretty pricey too. I have a much better option for you. Crazy Easy Pasta Sauce

This recipe (which is a “blend and go”) combines a number of veggies in just the right combination to give a pourable, but substantial, all natural sauce. You can use your fresh bought vegetables – so good for you! This is a GREAT way to eat more raw veggies, and a great way to trick your kids into doing so too. It’s vegan, gluten-free (provided you use gluten-free pasta), and mostly raw. Mostly importantly, there are loads of delicious, tasty vegetables in every bite.

Prep time: 5 minutes ~ Serves 4 

In a blender, combine:
     -2 c fresh cherry tomatoes (or diced fresh tomatoes)
     -2 c fresh spinach, packed
     -1 c carrots, chopped
     -2 T olive oil
     -1 t balsamic vinegar
     -1 t garlic powder
     -1/2 t each salt and black pepper

Blend. If you want your sauce to be thinner, blend until liquidy. If you want it to be chunkier, mix the ingredients first with a fork, then blend intermittently at a low speed.

If you’re on a low-sodium diet, you can use 1/4 t salt, and maybe supplement with some extra garlic powder.

Serve over 4 servings of your pasta of choice.
