1/2 onion cut into thick slices
4-5 quartered Roma tomatoes
2-3 tsp dried thyme
1/2 bag kaslos our dough spaghetti

While the veggies bake:
Cook the pasta according to package instructions. (Before draining set aside at least 1 cup pasta water).
Season prawns with pepper and garlic powder. Set aside.
Saute 1 tbsp avocado oil, garlic, and mushrooms in a large fry pan. After a few minutes add asparagus, pepper, salt, and garlic powder. After a couple minutes more add spinach. Cook until spinach slightly wilts and then put in a bowl and reserve for later.
In the same pan sauté the prawns for 2 minutes per side or until fully cooked. Put in a bowl and reserve for later.
In a high powered blender (Vitamixca) put the roasted veggies and 1/2 cup water. Blend on high until smooth (add water gradually until you reach the desired sauce consistency).
