My friend Mary posted the recipe for this Butcher's Pasta Sauce..
First I fell in love with the name..and of course her photos..and truthfully I had never made a pasta sauce in the crockpot.
My pasta sauces are varied...
stemming from my mom's original meat spaguetti sauce..now enhanced yrs later by additions my daughter made..I add capers now..and olives:) Sometimes Jacque's Italian sausage..but always.. beef.. and it is spicy!
A friend had just mentioned to me she would like a sweeter meat sauce..not spicy..
I thought..I will make Mary's..
You can find her recipe here..
I did something a little different and used only sweet Italian sausage nad lean ground veal..as I knew my friend was getting some..
Jacques and I added crushed chili pepers to ours when we ate it..but I was happy w/ the non spicy version too..
I made some grain breads that day..and shaped 2 like small pumpkins.. this is fun to do!
But the pumpkins are much cuter using NOT grain bread:)
Mind you..I find pasta sauces.. really good with just some Grissinis:)~♥
I loved the Butchers/Grocers.. I met in Italy:) Every single one of them..From the top of Castelluccio..
to the quaint town of Norcia..Marlena Di Blasi was supposed to have been there when I was..I looked and looked..to no avail..
Have you read any of her books?Tuscany and Venice were my favorites.
One thing just occured to me in doing this post..
While in Italy I took a few photos:) LOL..
And one..I loved..ok..one of the 1000+.. I loved..so when we got home..I tried to paint a simple beautiful scene to put as the cover of the photo album of the few ....photos I actually had printed..
This is the first time..that I see.. that the photo on this book..may very well be the same scene I took~
This sauce is super easy to make and makes quite a bit.. We had some for dinner..I gave one away..and have 3 pots left ap the size of that Weck jar.
The lady at the new WS store in Laval told me Weck jars were perfect freezer jars..I am trying it..but it won't be frozen long..they are too pretty for a freezer:)
The wrappers for the bread..I posted about before and in case you missed it you can find the link on where to get the download here.You will also find the recipe for the bread:) In the above I used Robin Hood Best For Bread Multi Grain flour ~.It's very good.
I made lasagna with the sauce too..yum.
I showed you Noah's lunch napkins for September..I thought his October ones were just as cute:)
No surprise her Elf On The Shelf was very busy last year and will be this year too..just like them:)
All the alphabet boys had a super Halloween..:)
But yesterday in our area (s)..not so great..
Fallen trees due to high winds..:( a trampoline ..even landed in front of our daughter's school..from who knows where!..wicked.. scary weather..
I don't remember such high winds in my youth..~
