“The fresh ingredients and the short cooking time, make this a perfect light summer pasta dish. I found this recipe online claiming to be a fake tomato sauce. It doesn't taste like tomato, but then again it doesn't really taste like carrot either. The way all of the flavors mesh, it's really an indescribable flavor. Everyone seems pretty skeptical until they try it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop the onions well and saute them in a skillet with the oil for about 10 minutes. Add the grated carrots and cook for other 5-8 minutes adding your soy sauce and a few Tablespoons of the pasta water to keep the sauce moist. When ready puree the sauce in a hand blender and put it back in the skillet.
  2. In the meantime cook the pasta as directed and before draining it save few spoons of its water. Add the pasta to the skillet and mix until well combined. Serve the pasta topped with sunflower seeds, parsley, parmesan cheese and a swirl of olive oil.
