I made this pasta dish a while back it was inspired by Reenis blog Cinnamon and Spice and everything nice. I roasted the carrot and garlic in the morning blended it and kept in the fridge. Then later boiled pasta and peas and mixed like a pesto it was wonderful to give to Jasmine as we were going out to watch Jerry Seinfeld!
He spoke a lot about food one quote was about restaurant specials "if its so special why isn't it on the menu!"
- 3 large carrots
- 4 cloves of garlic
- olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- cup of pasta
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- roast the carrots and garlic with salt and pepper at 400 for 20 minutes until soft, then blend with a hand blender adding a little water to make a paste
- boil pasta with peas, Jasmine likes peeeas! and mix in paste
