Healthy Pasta Sauce - Satisfy your pasta cravings the healthy way.
When we say healthy pasta sauce, we really mean it. This is a vegan pasta sauce for all your pasta needs. It's thick, wholesome and very, very tasty!
Make a healthy pasta sauce like you mean it. It's really good for you and you won't miss the animal flesh taste. This sauce is completely vegan!
Linguini pasta topped with vegan pasta sauce thickened with Italian eggplant simmered into the tomatoes. Serve it with garlic knots and you're good.
If you are married to an Italian family or an Italian descent of some sort like I am, you have got to eat pasta at all times to fit in, until you're sick and tired of eating them day in and day out. The mafia gang will disown you otherwise.
Gorge on the noodles. They come in different shapes and sizes but they all taste the same like, umm... pasta!
Okay. That's just an exaggeration. Still with me? Oh, good.
Seriously, pasta is their badge of pride, whereas mine, being Asian is got to be rice. Yeah, loads of rice. We can eat rice every day, 3 times a day. My knees shake when I can't eat rice. You can make fun of me right here, right now. I don't mind.
I cook a lot of pasta for my significant other but that doesn't mean I eat a lot of it on a daily. When I do, I make my healthy pasta sauce vegan style over some really good quality linguini.
When I say good quality, I mean I don't just pick up a box of dried up pasta from supermarket shelves. Who knows how long they have been sitting there?
Just to prove it, I once threw out one of those boxes, even the moths didn't touch it. Pasta is so much more processed compared to rice. They'll eat the rice, no doubt.
Bugs are just smarter than humans when it comes to food. Period.
So I like my pasta fresh. I pick mine up refrigerated at an Italian grocery store that makes them fresh. They taste so much better. I wouldn't dare throw some out to share with the bugs. That stuff is expensive!
So let's make the sauce, shall we?
Our Healthy Pasta Sauce Recipe
Vegan Pasta Sauce simmering
- 2 bulbs of garlic, diced or smashed
- 1 large chopped yellow Onion
- 1 dozen chopped Plum Tomatoes
- 1 small can of Tomato Paste (organic)
- 1/2 Italian Eggplant (Cubed)
- 1 tsp Oregano, 1 tsp Parsley, 1 tsp Thyme and a couple of large Bay Leaves, also rosemary if you have it. I got mine from the garden.
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Olive Oil to fry the garlic and onion
Put the oil in a large pot and stir fry the onion and garlic. Add in the chopped plum tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs and spices, salt and pepper and stir.
Add the cubed eggplant and simmer while stirring occasionally. As the eggplant becomes soft, it thickens the sauce. Eggplants are smart. It does the job better than the tomato paste when it comes to thickening the sauce.
So let the eggplant dominate!
Continue to simmer and stir until the eggplant cubes disintegrate into the sauce. You have got to taste it right there as it smells wonderful filling up your kitchen with the smell.
Remove from heat and set aside. Scoop it on top of your favorite pasta. Sprinkle some grated cheese if you really want to. Vegans, I hear you. Just be nice. Don't be mean. Life is short. You can use vegan cheese too.
It's a meatless pasta sauce yet it's super tasty. Had it with fresh Linguini and garlic knots and we had seconds. We used our bread to mop our bowls lickity clean!
Left-over sauce was saved to use for the baked eggplant being that it's eggplant season.
This sauce is really thick and good for anything including your favorite pizza dough. Go ahead, make your pizza with this, recipe here.
Give your basic vegetarian tomato sauce a new twist by adding cubed eggplant to it and simmer until it thickens to a beautiful healthy pasta sauce. You'll get a really thick fiber rich vegetarian spaghetti sauce.
This stuff is swoon worthy for any pasta. Make your night a pasta night!
