Spinach Sauce  
Very common in India and Italian dishes, this type of sauce is used as a base for cooking and flavoring dishes with poultry, vegetables, legumes, and pasta. Spinach Sauce may be made as a white creamy sauce or a red, tomato-based sauce. For a white Spinach Sauce, ingredients such as garlic, cheese, fresh or frozen spinach, and seasonings are often combined in a food processor to be blended, but not to the texture of a puree. For the red sauce, ingredients are similarly processed only to a point of fine bits, which may include tomatoes and tomato paste, fresh or frozen spinach, red peppers, onions, olives, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, paprika, and cloves.
