Before the menu chatter– I have been wanting to share this spaghetti sauce I threw together last week. It has been a multi-use sauce that I have served for paleo spaghetti, mixed with chicken or beef for a chili like entrée, or used as a dipping sauce. And since I created it all by myself, AKA, I wrote down measurements instead of throwing things in a pot, I was pumped
*All diced very small!*
1/2 yellow squash
1 cup of roasted potatoes (white and sweet, I roasted these earlier in the week)– adds thickness
14.5 ounce can of roasted diced tomatoes
8 ounce can of tomato sauce
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil (or fresh)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Sea salt and pepper
How to: Throw all the veggies in a warm (medium heat) pot that has your fat of choice (I used pork lard, ordered a high quality from US Wellness Meats). Sauté until soft and add the tomato products and spices. Simmer for roughly 20 minutes. Cool and pour into a blender to give it a good whir or use a handheld immersion blender to give it a nice blend right in the pot.
Use/serve however you need!
Let’s get down to business– I have been working very hard (and enjoying these Mac Attack paleo treats!!) on the thesis today and honestly just ran out of “staring at the computer screen” energy to post it earlier. Can’t complain though because I am almost finished
