(her tongue makes me laugh)
I did a semi-homemade recipe for pasta sauce today. I have been experimenting with making homemade sauce for a few months, but I'm scared of ruining it.
Gary and I recently branched out and instead of making pasta sauce with ground beef or turkey we are trying different sausages. We accidentally bought HOT this time, but it was still good.
I chopped half a red onion, a stalk of celery, one carrot, a medium yellow squash and a medium zucchini squash. I dumped it all into the slow cooker and poured a jar of pasta sauce into the slow cooker. I let it simmer on low from about noon until 5:00. I browned the sausage in a skillet and then added it to the sauce. I boiled the whole wheat pasta and then threw it into sauce and let it all sit for about 5 minutes.
I served this spaghetti and sausage creation with fresh green beans from our produce co-op.
The green beans were amazing. Layla ate three servings. I was shocked!!!
I boiled the green beans with garlic and 1 slice of bacon yesterday. I put them right into the fridge and the flavors meshed over night. They are amazing beans. I loved eating green beans from my grandparents garden when I was a little girl. I want to grow some in my backyard.
