Fresh Tomato & Carrot Sauce

A pasta dish you can’t refuse!

Everything You Will Need:
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 pound of fresh Italian sausage (removed from the casings)
  • 1 1/4 cups of onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed or chopped garlic
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • 2 cups of fresh, ripe tomatoes (peeled, seeded & chopped)
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of carrots (coarsely grated)
  • 1/3 cup of fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 pound pasta (Rotelle or Gemelli for this one)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmesan or Romano cheese (grated)

  • Heat the butter and the olive oil in a large frying pan.
  • Add the sausage, onion, and garlic.
  • To make sure your sauce and pasta are timed correctly, begin to bring a pot of water to a boil now. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.


  • Cook the sausage, onion and garlic over medium heat for five or six minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon to crumble the sausage.
  • Add the wine.
  • Raise the heat and simmer for five or six more minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and chicken broth.
  • Continue to cook for six or seven more minutes over medium-high heat.
  • Add the carrots and parsley.
  • Cook for five or six minutes more, or until the carrots are tender.
  • Drain the pasta in a colander and return back to the pot.
  • Add the sauce and gently mix together until the pasta is well coated.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve hot and top with grated cheese.

Serves 4 to 6. (Don’t expect any leftovers!)
