Tonight I made homemade spaghetti sauce, which I have never done before! To many of you, this might not seem like a big deal, but to me it is. I have never used anything other than Ragu or other kinds of store bought sauce. I found the recipe here: http://www.food.com/recipe/fresh-tomato-spaghetti-sauce-10837
I am still working on making recipes 100% grown in my yard, but this is the closest I have gotten, so that makes me happy. The basil, garlic and tomatoes were all from my yard. A friend gave me the green peppers that I added to the recipe.
My husband and I both agreed that the recipe was very good, just needed more tomatoes and I will definitely have to double it when the girls are home from camp. Very delicious though! I was worried because my husband does not like fresh tomatoes. He doesn't like my salsa I make with fresh tomatoes either, but after this cooked down a couple hours, it tasted just right and he said he liked it so that is a big plus!
Sorry for the Instagram photos, but here are a few of the process! Now to find a good recipe for canning pasta sauce once I get more tomatoes coming in. :)
*Forgot to add the sauce included venison harvested in our county by my husband as well. Yay! :)
