A Healthy Garlic & Bell Pepper Pasta Sauce

Garlic & Bell Pepper Pasta Sauce 🥫

This video was so much fun to make. But also this was the 4th time I tried to film myself making the video and now I have jars and jars of pasta sauce for days 🤪 Not that I’m complaining. Why make your own sauce? Because I want to enjoy my gluten-free carbs guilt free on days I want 🍝 And you will want to make your own sauce too when you realize how easy it’s gonna be 😉#homemadepastasauce #homemadesauce #pasta #vegetarianfriendly
