Thanks for sharing that
Sounds like a great recipe...thanks for sharing!
Quoting BramblePatch:Mine is pretty basic:
1 pound 93% lean ground beef (or ground turkey breast)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28oz) can Italian style crushed tomatoes*
1 (15oz) can Italian style stewed tomatoes*
2 tbsp italian tomato paste*
2.5 cups water
1.5 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp dried italian seasoning
1 tsp salt, or more to taste
3/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
* I use Muirs Glen Organics
Brown beef (or turkey) with onion, pepper, and garlic. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a bubble: cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occassionally.
1 large can crushed tomatoes
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1/2 yellow onion
1 clove garlic
Salt, pepper, oregano, marjoram, bay leaves
3 carrots, chopped
1 zucchini, grated
3-4 cups spinach
1 cup vegetable broth or stock
Sauté or roast vegetables. Add tomatoes, spices and vegetable broth. Simmer twenty minutes. Add spinach. Cool and puree. To serve, heat on medium for about ten minutes, add olive oil, serve with pasta of choice. Can be altered by adding or substituting different vegetables, herbs, etc that you have on hand.
We just buy the Amy's Family Marinara. With all the other from scratch foods I make already sometimes it's just easier to grab that jar, lol
I cheat and use jar sauces most of the time. I make them a bit healthier by taking spinach and pureeing some into the sauce. It can make the sauce a darker color but it depends on how much you use and I do this for pizza sauces, too.
This is my basic tomato sauce. You can add whatever spices or herbs you like.
Garden fresh tomatoes, yum!!! I use fresh tomatoes now too. I have to buy mine from the farmers market or grocery store though.
Quoting cookinmommyof1:I blanched/peeled a bunch of tomatoes from my garden (probably 2 pounds or so), pureed most, chopped the rest. Added basil, parsley, oregano, finely chopped onion and garlic, fresh ground black pepper, a little salt, sugar. I don't really measure when making it, just go by taste. Lol
