If you are tired of traditional pasta sauces, then you are in for a treat today. This Broccoli Feta Pasta Sauce Recipe is incredibly delicious and full of fresh flavor. It’s a great low calorie pasta sauce to top your favorite noodles.

It also works great over chicken, rice or a baked potato. I first ate these over Miracle Noodles and it was excellent and very filling.

This decadent pasta sauce is a great way to get in your veggie servings, too, as the sauce is mostly broccoli. But surprisingly, it doesn’t have an overwhelming broccoli taste.
