Hi, my name is Ari! I'm a wife and mama to a beautiful family. We are a lot a bit dramatic and live life without any dull moments. I love to make healthy and wholesome meals in the kitchen, with a little bit of chocolate cake on the side. My passion is to help others live a healthy lifestyle in all aspects. Whether it's a kale salad, great cardio, waffles on Sunday, or enjoying the crazy moments of wife and motherhood.

quick and easy pasta sauce

Usually when I go to the grocery store, I buy pasta sauce in bulk, because it’s SO nice to have on hand for quick and easy dinners. But every so often I’ll go to grab a jar for dinner only to find I haven’t restocked my pantry!

Luckily, putting together a homemade pasta sauce is just as easy as grabbing a jar! (Well, kind of , but it’s definitely close!) This pasta sauce recipe has a little spin on it though, because I added a little bit of sweet potato puree. Having three little kids I’m always trying to sneak in extra nutrients, plus it gives this pasta sauce a nice sweetness as well as a rich taste!

Quick and Easy Sweet Potato Pasta Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled, diced, and steamed until soft
  • 2 tb. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tb. fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes, with basil
  • sprinkle of sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red pepper flakes to taste, optional

(To make this a ‘cream’ version you can add 1/2 cup of heavy cream after the onions are cooked)

Instructions

  1. In the Magic Bullet Blender, add your softened sweet potato. Blend until creamy. You can add a few tb. of water as needed to puree easily.
  2. In a saucepan on low medium heat, add your EVOO. Then add your onions and garlic. Cook 3-5 minutes until translucent.
  3. Next add in your rosemary and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Once that is done, add in the rest of your ingredients, including the sweet potato puree. Whisk until combined, and adjust seasonings.
  5. You can puree the sauce into the Magic Bullet Blender for a non-chunky sauce, or leave as is.
  6. Keeps in the fridge for up to a week.
