I had an overabundance of tomatoes from our garden (as is everyone's story)--- so I made some spaghetti sauce!
Making Spaghetti Sauce
First you blanch the tomatoes (boil then put in cold water) and remove the skins:
And then you puree them in a blender --- sorry no picture of this.
Put tomatoes in a pot and add whatever you want (zuccini, carrots, spices, garlic, onion, etc).
And you let it simmer for ALL day! (I left mine there for about 6-8 hours).
(My house smelled so good!)
Of course this makes a lot, so I used some for dinner that night and froze the rest....
This past weekend, I wanted to use up more tomatoes, so we made home made pizza with fresh tomato sauce....
First I made dough for the pizza crust (is has oregano in it!)... this is before it is baked...
Then I washed tomatoes and put them in the chopper for a few seconds... a great "sauce!"
I added lots of cheese and baked it and ta-da!...a delicious pizza!!!... unfortunately I cut it before I took the picture (looked better in real life of course!)...
This and the spaghetti sauce were both SO good (to my amazement)
and I wish you could just TASTE a bite! :)
I absolutely LOVE Italian food.
Think I might be Italian?!
