Do you ever find yourself craving pasta and feeling guilty about wanting it so badly?? Here’s a delicious and yet nutritious alternative to some of those dense pasta dishes.

Red Pepper Sauce:
Ingredients
1 can of diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
2 cups of sliced red peppers
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup milk

Directions
In a large skillet, heat tomatoes and red peppers on medium, add seasonings. Cover with lid and let cook for 7 minutes or until peppers are tender. Turn heat off and let cool. Once cool enough, pour mixture into blender and add milk. Blend until smooth.

Your sauce is now complete and you just need to add the pasta! Another great addition are peas and diced chicken. Tonight I made some meatballs to go with it 🙂

Enjoy and cheers to Mindful Healthy Living!

Good morning!! It’s a beautiful Saturday morning here in Hoboken, NJ. Woke up craving some fresh juice so I made some and drank most of it before I remembered to take the picture (it was that good). Thankfully, I remembered and was able to capture the last few sips for you all. 🙂

– Apples contain antioxidants that help protect “good” cholesterol levels in the blood.
