Straight from the garden to your stock pot. You’ll never want to eat jarred spaghetti sauce again!
Wash and rough chop all of the veggies, garlic and herbs.
Over medium heat saute onion pieces in the butter in a large stock pot for 5 mintues. Add in garlic and mushrooms, saute 5 minutes more. Add in all of the remaining veggies and the basil. Season well with all of the listed seasonings, per your taste buds. Simmer on the stove, covered, for 45 minutes.
Stir and continue to simmer, uncovered, for the next 5-7 hours. Your house is going to smell amazing!
Right before serving, blend the sauce with an immersion blender and season well again. The tomatoes really bland everything down, you’ll be surprised how much seasoning you need! (I probably did at least 2 tablespoons of each herb total, by this second time seasoning!!)
Serve hot and fresh over pasta. Or place in jars, filling the jars 3/4 of the way full, cool and freeze.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
Quinoa, Black Bean and Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers
You can use either chicken or pork in this recipe. It’s so good my hubby always has to go back for more. The kids eat it up too!
