This Healthy Pasta Sauce is a new revelation for me!

We love our pasta, be it a simple Peperoncino or Arrabiata or with some pesto, we love them all. I make different types of pasta sauces, mostly tomato-based but I am the biggest fan of Peperoncino and my Kale Pesto Pasta. Recently I did an event for my friend, and we had a ton of vegetables left, I don’t particularly appreciate wasting food, so I offered I would make something out of them.

In that vegetable bunch, I had carrots, red peppers/capsicum, celery and a few tomatoes. I didn’t want to make a soup, and I had never made a Pasta Sauce with these vegetables, especially carrots. So after racking my brains, I decided to make this Healthy Pasta Sauce!

 This Healthy Pasta came together in about 35 minutes in the Thermomix, and what makes it healthy? I am glad you asked, all the vegetables are cooked on 120C/ 250F which keeps all the nutrients intact.

The key to a good pasta sauce is the balance of herbs, spices and right tartness. The carrots and red peppers in this Healthy Pasta worked really well; it balances the acidity of those canned tomatoes.

To make this Healthy Pasta Sauce more flavourful, I added a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme and to give more depth of flavour; I added 1 red chilli. Trust me, that chilli packs a punch!

This Healthy Pasta Sauce goes well with spaghetti, meatballs and even as a pizza base. So give this recipe a try!
