All ingredients getting ready to be blended into a yummy sauce.

Done and yum! Add diced tomatoes, lettuce and grated cheese on top to give the dish some color. This manic managed mom had to run out the door after this, so I didn't have time to add the final touches, but I recommend that you top it with extras 🙂
