Clean Eating Yellow Pepper Pasta Sauce

Clean Eating Yellow Pepper Pasta SauceClean Eating Yellow Pepper Pasta SauceClean Eating Yellow Pepper Pasta SauceWhen my eldest was little, I used to take a weekly trip to a green grocers in town where I would pick myself a new fruit or vegetable to try each week. I’d usually pick something a little more exotic like fresh lychee’s, dragon fruit and vegetables like shallots, kale and yellow or orange peppers, all of which I had never cooked with before. (We only did green and red peppers in my house growing up, oh how I had been missing out!).

I can remember one day making the most delicious sweet yellow pepper pasta sauce with the fresh vegetables that I had picked from that week. It felt so good to know that I was able to get all of that goodness into my little man and definitely made for a happy lunchtime together.

I recreated that recipe to go with some meatballs last week and it didn’t disappoint. Sweet and delicious, this sauce can stand alone or be enjoyed with hearty meatballs or vegetables. You can also make this up in batches and store in your freezer for quick and easy meals any night of the week.

    What a great way to bulk out the pasta sauce with some yellow peppers and get some extra vitamins too!
