I know what you’re all probably thinking- “Finally! She’s actually sharing a dinner recipe.”
Most of what I share on my blog are healthy, vegan smoothie and dessert recipes. Not exactly the most helpful things when you are trying to transition your family into eating better…
I’m just not as innovative with my savory recipes as I am with my desserts and smoothies. But once and a while I do hit a home run with one of my own creations for dinner. And on those occasions, I always make sure to share with you. This is one of those occasions!
Creamy pastas and I are like cookies and milk, peanut butter and jelly, popcorn and butter. We just have a natural affinity for one another.
So to satisfy my creamy pasta addiction, I came up with this 100% guilt-free, low-to-almost-no-fat, super good for you CREAMY pasta sauce.
And yes. It is as good as it looks.
The idea came from me when I came across a sun-dried tomato-almond pesto in Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s “Vegan With a Vengeance“. I thought “Wow, this would make a great pasta sauce!” And sure enough, with a few ingredient changes, it made an incredible pasta sauce.
Even Scarlett thoroughly enjoyed this. Usually it is really hard to get her to eat pasta with anything on it but oil. But after much coaxing I was able to get her to try it. Once she had that first bite, the whole plate was empty in less than five minutes! Wohooooo! There is nothing like a successful healthy meal for your kids
