Carrot Pasta Sauce
Carrots are a great source of fiber and B vitamins like niacin and B6. Carrots come in all different colors. Try to eat a variety of different colored carrots, so you can consume a variety of different antioxidants.
Tip: I highly recommend using your own homemade chicken broth. Here is our easy instant pot chicken broth recipe. We like to prepare a large batch and freeze into ½ cup and 1 cup portions for when we need it. The silicone molds we use for this are listed below.
1 lb carrots
5 Tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic
4 ½ cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 Tablespoons tomato sauce
1 lb penne pasta
Parmesan cheese for garnish
- Add olive oil, sliced carrots, onions, and garlic to a large pot over medium heat for 10 minutes.
- Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, chicken broth, red pepper flakes, and tomato sauce and turn to low and let simmer for 20 minutes or until carrots are soft.
- Blend with an immersion blender or cool and add to a blender. May blend until smooth if desired.
- Serve with cooked penne pasta and parmesan cheese, enjoy!
