It is funny that the Theme Thursday at Cari is food, since today I have decided to use all of my ripe tomatoes and make spaghetti sauce.
Obviously I did not use the cucumbers, I just like this colorful photo:)
I am indeed proud of my creation, since the tomatoes and basil came from my garden. The abundance of it is tremendous, the only pity is that probably be next week I will be missing them a lot. Too bad the can't ripen one or two per day.
Since it is a food theme it made it easier for me to join the long forgotten Pennywise Platter link up.
Here is the recipe.
- four pounds of tomatoes
- one carrot
- one clove of garlic
- one onion
- fresh basil, parsley, oregano
- salt and black pepper
- olive oil
Basically, the ingredients have to be chopped up and saute in the olive oil until tender and tasty , I would say for about two hours? I am still cooking so I guess I will find out later.
When the sauce is ready I will let it cool down and blend until smooth. For my very picky eaters. As long as they don't taste the piece of a vegetable, they are OK with it.
The recipe is not mine, but modified according to the ingredients found in my house:)
I hope you can enjoy it too, or send me an old, fail proofed, family recipe.
