Vegetarian Pasta Sauce
Practically a superfood!
- 2 TB olive oil
- 14 oz can tomato sauce
- ¼ cup water
- 14 oz can cannellini beans rinsed and drained
- 1 medium sweet potato peeled and sliced
- 1 broccoli crown in florets
- 1 Roma tomato cubed
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
Place peeled and sliced sweet potato in a microwave-safe bowl with water. Microwave, covered, 3-4 minutes until just starting to soften. Cut slices into bite-sized cubes.
Heat large saucepan on medium heat, add oil. Add the onions and beans. Cook, stirring, for 5-7 minutes, until onion and beans are just starting to brown. Add sweet potato, then garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add chopped tomato and broccoli and pour in the tomato sauce and water.
Add Italian seasoning and stir. Allow sauce to come to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Turn off heat, add spinach and stir. The spinach will wilt in 30-60 seconds.
Serve alone or with pasta/zoodles.
