My First Blog!

I always gave my boyfriend such a hard time about blogs and all the crap people would write, but here I am Eating my words as usual doing what I said I’d never do! The key word here Eating! We love to do it in our household and I come from a long line of “Foodies”(meaning people who love to eat). My first recipe for my first blog will be Fresh Tomato Pasta w/ Meat. A favorite in our house! Tomatoes are one of those super foods packed full of good stuff like vitamin C, vitamin A and antioxidants. This is a simple but delicious meal.
Fresh Tomato Sauce Over Pasta Recipe…

Ingredients: tomatoes, onion, garlic, ground beef, italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt & ground pepper, olive oil, bay leaves

Tomato Sauce;
1. Heat stock pot over medium heat.

2. Dice 1/2 of white onion, pour olive oil in pot (til it covers the bottom) throw in onion. add a few pinches of salt & ground pepper let them carmelize

3. Quarter 11-13 roma tomatoes. set aside

4. Add red pepper flakes, & italian seasoning into the pot, stir, add 1lb. ground beef, season with salt & pepper, let brown.

5. Smash 3 cloves of garlic, roughly chop rest of onion, place tomato’s, garlic, onion, & a few pinches of salt & pepper in blender, set blender to chop and pulse chop until ingredients are mixed and chopped up.

6. Pour tomato mix in pot, add 2 bay leaves, let sauce come to a boil, and then simmer for about an hour. (no lid)

Tips:
Tomatoes are watery so you have to let the water cook out, the longer you simmer the better the flavor. You can speed up cooking by cooking on a higher heat but be sure to keep an eye on it. If you need to thicken the sauce add a can of plain tomato sauce. If you ever have red wine left over it’s always nice to cook in the sauce. Just add it after you browned your meat.

Pasta:
1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot.
2. Salt water and add angel hair pasta, (or your favorite kind of pasta)
3. Strain pasta and pour into a large serving dish.
Pour sauce over pasta & mix together, grate mozzerella cheese over top, finish with fresh basil.
