Garlic and Mashed-Carrot Sauce, Canadian

This is another recipe I nabbed from Weight Watcher's Canada. I really like their recipes, at least the ones that come complete on their newsletter! They are always easy as pie and very healthy (and I assume low in calories!) Here is the meal suggestion from Weight Watcher's Canada:

>> Make a garlic and mashed-carrot sauce to serve over pasta or as a bread spread.<<

Follow up! This is a brilliant recipe! We made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit. It sounds wierd, but the carrot taste is mellowed through cooking, so the result is a really hearty, satisfying taste, with carrot level calories! Don't think of this one as a diet recipe...make it on a cold day, and enjoy! PS...I think pine nuts sprinkled over each serving before serving would increase the "Yummy" factor even more.

  • Some Carrots - (4 or 5 sounds about right!)
  • 1 clove-toe garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Water
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preparation Instructions

Cook chopped carrots with garlic, olive oil, and a bit of water as a stock until mushy. Adding freshly grated parmesan cheese will make it creamy. Serve warm over fettucine.

Note from RH: If you ask me, this is just screaming for black olives and walnuts as a topper. Serve with a fresh, green salad, and either a crisp white wine or a hearty red....wierd eh? But both seem to fit...
