Healthy Homemade Spaghetti O's- I pinned it, then tried it
I pinned this recipe, then I tried it. First things first, because I don't like to set people up for disappointment-
This doesn't really taste like the canned stuff
This may or may not be good news to you. It is just like what you'd think a homemade version of this might be though. It's a silky blended sauce with pasta dotted through (shells since you can't find O's), eaten with a spoon, hot and soul-filling. Parmesan cheese on top is the perfect topper.
Not only is this a homemade version of a canned product, it's also really healthy! I was pleasantly surprised by this. The sauce is pureed roasted tomatoes, carrots, onion, two whole heads of garlic and vegetable stock. It's a little bit of prep but doesn't take long and it's well worth it. Since it's summer, I found beautiful tomatoes to use for this, but since roasting improves the flavor, you can use winter tomatoes as well. I might make a batch or two while the tomatoes are at peak and freeze the sauce for the fall months for a quick dinner.
