I waited until my 'maters were fully ripened before trying this. I promised I wouldn't make this a recipe blog, but you know I love photos, so how about a photo-recipe?
Grab some tomatoes, an onion and some garlic. Score and chop.
Boil the tomatoes.
Give them an ice bath.
Throw some EVOO, and the chopped onions in a hot pot.
Add the tomatoes after their bath and chopped.
Blend with a stick blender. We call it the motorboat blender.
Add the meat and simmer for a while. Throw in some herbs and sugar.
This was my first ever attempt at making spaghetti sauce, from either can-scratch or real-scratch. I also bought my first onion ever for this recipe. That's how often we eat onions. This was even better the next day too, so make sure you have enough for leftovers. The hubs gave my first try as a 7 out of 10. I'll take it!
