Nom Nom Kids - Creamy Butternut Squash and Carrot Sauce



A nutrient rich sauce bursting with antioxidant carotenoids rich in complex carbohydrates and high in fibre. So ideal for healthy digestion and great for energy.

Works perfectly as a sauce for pasta or a topping for fish or chicken.

A huge thank you to our guest recipe contributor Suzanne of Nom Nom Kids.

"I have been serving this as a pasta sauce for the past 3 years and my kids love it. We sometimes add a tablespoon of red pesto if there happens to be a jar open and I serve with a little bowl of extra grated cheese for the kids to add on top themselves. They love it so I keep a big stock in the freezer for a quick and easy tea!"
