Turning cleaning out the fridge into Spaghetti Sauce!
Today I wanted to clean out my refidgerator. There were some random vegetables that I did not want to go to waste. I also had leffover Turkey Meatballs and spaghetti but not enough sauce. So! I decided to make my own sauce.
I chopped up some onion, carrots and zucchini. I was careful to chop them as small as I could. It doesn't make a huge difference because I planned to puree them later but smaller chunks would make it easier.
I looked in my pantry to see what I might have for the sauce base. A friend had given me some tomato juice that her mother in law canned and I had one little jar of canned tomatoes that I put up last summer. Awesome! I was ready to go.
This is after the sauce had cooked down for about 45 minutes.
