Sheet Pan Pasta Sauce

I love the idea of making my own pasta sauce, but every time I do it, I regret it. I’ve just never mastered the art. This sheet pan technique, however, is fool proof!

A friend shared a picture of her version on my meal planning facebook page and I knew it was destined for my kitchen table. I added carrot for sweetness and if I had had courgette, I would have thrown that on the sheet as well.

I used this as a sauce for meatballs, but it would work beautifully in a lasagna, or as a sauce for pasta. It is a great way to use up the veg in your fridge before it goes off!
