When I started my blog one of the first emails I received was from Deanna from Matkonation. What she didn't know back then is that I was a loyal reader of her blog for months! This email made me feel like I'm part of the grown up gang..When I mailed her to to share with me one of her dinner ideas this post was born and maybe a new entrance to our top 5 dinner options. I love blogs world! And I love this pasta sauce! how to shortly:
2 garlic cloves
1 shredded carrot
1 bottle of crashed tomatoes (I used CIRIO)
little less then 1/4 of a cup heavy cream
2 Tbs olive oil
salt and pepper to test
put chopped onion and garlic in a pot with olive oil. 5 minutes. Add shredded carrot for another 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and the cream, cook over low heat for 1/2 an hour.
Big brother is not home yet, but the sauce is ready and I'm sure he will go crazy for it!!!
Few tips Deanna gave me: Barilla make very thin spaghetti that is ready in 3 min! it's Barilla no. 1. Second, if your kids don't like pieces of vegetables in their sauce you can use the hand stick to squash them. last, be prepped and always have a pasta sauce in the fridge! So, big thanks to Deanna and go visit Matkonation the food and the pictures are amazing!
A little DIY to add some color to this post - wash the CIRIO bottle and reuse it for a home coming gift! BETEAVON!
