#RECIPEFRIDAY: Savoury Tomato Sauce in 30 minutes...

I was in the mood for making a mean tomato sauce so...

I went through my pantry and picked out a few ingredients which I hoped would make for something...

Yummy and delicious in less than 30 minutes! (Often the meals I prepare don't take much I knew it wouldn't take me long just happened to be under 30 lol)

Having said that...

It's really quite amazing what you can prepare in no time with just a few key things you have laying around for the using.


After my workout one day...

I turned on my element and got to cooking.

I swear...

It can be a lot of FUn to just throw things together and it turn out to be something flavourful! (And even if it's not, at least you know you attempted something new, which brought out the creativity in you. I mean, you don't know until you try right?!)

No doubt...

I was happy when SuperFit said his pasta was mighty good! (Okay, he didn't use the word mighty but he did say something along the lines of "well, that was really good!")

Here's the recipe if you're wanting to try something new for dinner!

    it's counter intuitive but Ive found is tremendously increases her appreciation for the food we/she eat.

    1. I can definitely relate to that Carla! When it comes to making my sourdough bread, it's all about the slow. The process is very calming and really quite zen for me. It's like my own form of meditation :)

  2. Yummy, love the cumin in there! Looks delicious! :)

  3. Mmm sounds yum! I would add some anchovies and/or tuna to the mix, I like to bulk it up ;)
