Several years ago I was getting box fulls of tomatoes from folks at church so I searched out a spaghetti sauce recipe to use them up. It was hard to find a recipe that used fresh tomatoes rather than strictly canned ones but I did finally find one. It makes a huge batch, perfect for freezing future meals. You can cook it on the stove top but in the heat of summer I opt for my electric roasting pan, letting it just simmer away for hours. To get the best flavor, I cook meatballs and/or sausage right in the sauce. We tried hot sausage one year and the flavor was incredible but too spicy for us so I stick with mild sausage now. The photo isn't the best as it was dark and raining out the night we enjoyed our meal, but here it is...
Of course I had to create a recipe card for my files. The embellishment on this one was a freebie when I ordered some items from Etsy. Works for me!
My other favorite thing to make with tomatoes is salsa. I have already posted that recipe here. Just gotta find more time in the day.
This afternoon we head back up to Toronto so my mom can catch her flight back to Germany. Her visit just flew by. Sniff, sniff!
