FRIDGE SURPRISE: CREAMY CARROT PASTA SAUCE

What’s a girl to do when faced with two (limp) carrots, three (lonely) tomatoes, an (ever-so-slightly mouldy) onion and some (ancient) garlic? Make pasta sauce, of course! But first, a bit of background. I’ve decided that today I’ll share with you the first of a ‘fridge surprise’ series that I’ll be starting on the blog.…… Continue reading FRIDGE SURPRISE: CREAMY CARROT PASTA SAUCE
