Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup diced white onion
  • 1 ½ cups carrots, diced small - 2 carrots
  • ¼ cup water reserved from the carrot water
  • 28 ounces your favorite spaghetti sauce with basil
  • 15 ounces cannellini beans
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 10 ounce linguine, uncooked

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet.
  • Add the onion and saute for about 10 minutes.
  • While the onion is cooking, add the carrots to a medium sized saucepan and cover with water.
  • Cover and bring to a boil. Remove the lid and lightly boil for 10-15 minutes or until the carrots are pierced easily with a fork.
  • While the carrots are cooking - cook the linguine according to package directions.
  • Drain the carrots (reserving ¼ cup of the water).
  • When the onions are done add the sauce and reserved water to the skillet.
  • Add the beans, carrots, sage, salt and pepper and heat through.
  • Drain the linguine and toss with half of the tomato vegetable sauce.
  • If it has cooled off too much - turn the heat back on and heat through quickly.
  • Serve with the remaining heated sauce to be added over the top when served.
