I just love pasta, and especially if it is mixed in a unique, homemade sauce like this carrot sauce! Yum! Yummy! Divine! Can’t express my happiness enough! I had some baby carrots lying in my refrigerator which I wanted to use up. With that thought, I put the carrots in a grinder and cooked all the ingredients. By the time the sauce was ready I realized it was the perfect sauce for my pasta meal. My day was made, and my dinner was my favorite!
