Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

File_000 (3).jpeg

If I had a favorite food, it would probably be pasta. Recently I've really been into lentil pasta. It's more satisfying than regular pasta because it's filled with protein. Don't get me wrong though. I have nothing against regular pasta. Eat what you love. This isn't even really about the pasta though. It's all about the sauce. 

I have actually really been into making my own pasta sauce lately. It's so easy to customize sauces and you don't have to worry about them being filled with junk, like some of the brands that are in the stores. Plus, pasta sauce tastes sooo good and fresh when it's homemade. I have not tested a diary free version of this sauce yet but as soon as I do will post the substitutions.
