Creamy Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce


This Creamy Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce is super easy to make and it’s vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free too.

And believe it or not, it doesn’t have cauliflower, although the thought did cross my mind!

But I kept it very simple for one main reason….the olive oil that I used.

I used the Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil I received from Pastamore’ to make the sauce and not only is it a timesaver, but gives it an unbelievable rustic flavor.

All the seasonings and herbs are already in the dipping oil so there is really nothing else to add for flavor, with the exception of a little Himalayan pink salt.

In fact, I made it with my Vitamix in under 2 minutes, from start to finish.

The nice folks at Pastamore’ sent me samples of their gourmet Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil to use in creating a new recipe.

I actually made several recipes with it…this one, Rosemary and Roasted Garlic HummusSweet Potato Fettuccine and Creamy Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Sauce and Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Chickpeas.

It’s an all-natural, GMO-free, gluten-free and vegan dipping oil that is “extra virgin olive oil combined with roasted garlic, herbs and Dijon mustard to create the perfect bread dipping oil”.

It is generously filled with a herb paste made from rosemary, sage, parsley, black pepper, cayenne and chili pepper.

One of the reasons I really liked this brand is because Pastamore’ was started over 16 years ago by participating in local Farmer’s Markets in Colorado and this is exactly the kind of product you would find at a Farmer’s Market.

I love when I can buy local products like this from my Farmer’s Market.  And, they believe it giving back to their communities and contribute to their local Food Bank…very nice!

Now unless I just never paid attention, I don’t remember ever seeing this kind of selection of gourmet oils, vinegars, gluten-free pasta and marinades when I shop at Whole Foods.
