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.

The feta helps balance it out, delivering a perfectly flavored sauce that is nutritious as well as delicious.
