Easy Roasted Vegetable Blender Pasta Sauce

 

Paleo Blender Roasted Vegetable Pasta SauceThis was another recipe I was drawn to as it used my Blendtec, and required no special effort on my part.  I am not sure why I hadn’t thought of it before, but this recipe is beautiful to look at, beautiful in it’s simplicity, and a lot of fun to play around with.

Roasting the vegetables brings out all the lovely sweetness and fills your home with a heavenly, savory perfume.

Have fun, this is a great basic recipe to personalize and play with!  Use as you would any jar of pasta sauce: over a bed of any noodle, in a lasagne, as a base for a soup.

Ingredients to play with in the sauce: butternut squash, capers, red wine, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, eggplant, winter greens, spinach, and zucchini/summer squash.  Maybe even some diced bacon!

For a straight tomato sauce: I use solely tomatoes, onions, garlic, seasonings, and a bit of tomato paste to taste.

Yield: About 4 cups sauce

    What a great recipe for a healthy sauce. My kids would love this over pasta or as a dipping sauce. It sounds so easy too. This is my kind of recipe! Following from Allergy Free Wednesdays! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe! Jana http://www.adoctorandanurse.com

    I LOVE this idea! Thanks for sharing. It’s great because you can vary it when certain veggies are not in season (like tomatoes) and use less of them and more of the others, like root veggies. I am running low on my stash from last season and am looking for a way to stretch those tomatoes until the next harvest!

    • Thanks jen! I love recipes that people be creative…it’s fun to see what happens and how flavors marry…at least for me! I guess that is why I am food blogger, lol! Things like that are exciting for me!
