I made pasta and meatballs last night and the sauce was completely made from produce from my garden. It's a great way to use up all those tomatoes close to going bad.
I stewed about 15 tomatoes with garlic and salt and pepper then ran them through a sieve. I then added a shredded carrot, one stock of fennel, one onion, more garlic and herbs, basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary, parsley, and cooked most of the day. Then I put it all in a food processor and processed till smooth...oh how tasty was this. The meatballs, well I used the 1170 meatloaf recipe (halved) and just made them into meatballs instead...oh so yummy too! Here is the result:
After eating this delicious creation I sat out on the porch and enjoyed the rest of the day. It was another scorcher today but it was cooler by this time. With a big glass of homemade lemonade and the beautiful wild flowers right in front of my view, who could ask for more!
