Then combined with some nutty, creamy fontina cheese, browned meat, and your favorite pasta. The perfect way to feed your family and get them to eat their veggies.

Creamy Fontina Pasta Sauce With Hidden Vegetables

Two tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped.
Two cloves garlic, finely chopped.
2 cups kale
One tablespoon tomato paste
1- 13.5 ounce can whole tomatoes.
Handful flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped.
1 cups eggplant, chopped. (I had fairy tale eggplant on hand.)
Two teaspoons dark brown sugar (Cuts the acidity.)
One teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
4 ounces fontina cheese
1 pound cooked ground meat (I used ground lamb)
1 point pasta of choice ( I used rigatoni)

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes.

Add in eggplant and kale and saute for another 3 minutes.

Stir in the tomato paste, whole tomatoes, sugar, and thyme. Mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 15-20 minutes.

You can choose to leave this sauce chunky or use a food processor, hand mixer or blender to puree the vegetables (hide them).

Add in fontina cheese to the hot sauce and allow to melt. Before topping with chopped parsley.

You can add your favorite browned meat to this sauce and serve over pasta.

Delicious!
