Grandmas Pasta Sauce (25 minutes sauce)

The perfect recipe, inspired by my Greek roots and family – takes minutes, uses healthy, plant based (or vegan), natural food ingredients.  I mean just look at this picture, it might be a bit messy, but it certainly screams “EAT ME”! right? Lucky for you I have turned this into one of the easiest plant based recipes, ever!

All you need is the gorgeous natural and organic foods, a sauce pan, and a high speed blender!

These flavours all marry perfectly and really come together with each and every bite! I don’t feel like I have to say much more about this dish so before I leave you I will remind you why you have to make it!

This Pasta Sauce is:

  • Healthy
  • Plant-based (vegan)
  • quick + easy
  • fuss free + clean
  • flavourful
  • satisfying
  • sweet and spicy
