Spaghetti with Nomato Sauce

Author : Strive Health

Some kidney patients need to avoid high potassium foods such as tomatoes, which is why making a nomato sauce (a pasta sauce made with no tomatoes) is a great alternative! Instead, the red color in the sauce comes from beets. Beets add many beneficial vitamins and minerals, along with carrots, celery, onion, and garlic, for a kidney-friendly and delicious pasta dish.


  • 4 cups cooked whole wheat pasta
  • 2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 ½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup chopped canned low-sodium beets
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 ½ Tbsp salt-free Italian mix seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • ¾ tsp salt


  1. Chop vegetables into small pieces. Steam cook chopped vegetables until well-done and tender.
  2. In a blender, add the steamed vegetables, vegetable broth, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt. Blend on high until you reach a smooth consistency.
  3. Cook pasta according to package directions. Plate the pasta and pour sauce on top, then serve.
