Okay....This is a REALLY Good Recipe!!!

Hi Everyone...hope you had a great evening and a better day today!! Well, I made this wonderful spaghetti sauce last night...this is my second batch of goodness!! I got this recipe from Biz, Here is where you can find the recipe. Sure hope this link worked for you. Apparently the link did not work so here is her address: http://mybizzykitchen/2014/01/10/pissed Just type it in and you'll find her recipe.
This is how I changed up Biz's recipe. I had two tomatoes, but half went on JP's salad. So I used 1 1/2 tomatoes, 1 pepper and squirted some crushed garlic on the inside of the peppers, 1 small onion, maybe a cup of small carrots and sliced them in half, maybe half of a shredded zucchini, and 4-5 halved stalks of celery. I then sprinkled olive oil on the vegies then sprinkled some seasoning called "Mad Dog and Merrill's Gramma Hazel's seasoning" or you can use salt and pepper, omit if you like and add your own favorite seasoning. Chopped spinach.
Roasted the vegetables for an hour at 325. I let the vegies cool down then put them in a pot with a 16 oz can of diced tomatoes. I tried to find canned tomatoes with the lowest grams of sugar. Added 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning and some crushed red pepper (optional)
Cooked till hot, and with an immersion blender, blended until the vegetables are pureed. Here is where I added the chopped spinach and cooked a bit longer till the spinach wilted.
I plated out the spaghetti, poured the sauce over it then added some mozzarella on top and melted in the micro.
First bite waiting to be taken....mmmmmmm.....was it ever gooooood. JP came home at 1:00 am. Gave him his bowl of fruit and toast and a big plate of spaghetti and sauce, he finished that up and then asked for another plateful....I guess he likes it too.

So there you have it, recipe of the month and it is a keeper. I may not ever buy another can or jar of spaghetti sauce again, now that I have this recipe, I like it so much. You all have a great day and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise

Oh Diana....I think you can leave the peppers out if you like and still get a good pot of sauce. Originally the recipe I got didn't have onions. I think you could add any kind of roasted vegie you like.

I imagine you could easily multiply this recipe, simmer away and then freeze in smaller portions for use in the summer time when turning ovens on is unthinkable in the heat. Sounds delicious.

Patricia...oh yes, I am sure it can be frozen in smaller portions. So far there has not been enough left to freeze, it is awesome...I don't even want to buy regular spaghetti sauce now....I am spoiled already!!

Patty, Oh yes the sauce is delish...Went shopping and go more vegies to roast in a few days.

Thanks for the shout out Louise! I agree, jarred sauce won't ever be the same after making this.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

Biz
