This recipe was one of many given to us in a pretty recipe box at my wedding shower. Easy and delicious, this comforting, aromatic soup is perfect for cold winter days. We like it with salad and quesadillas for a simple, delicious Mexican meal.
Not sure where this came from originally but I made a bunch of changes; I enjoyed it so much I decided to share it here. If you can't find refried black beans, use another can of plain black beans and mash them with a potato masher or in a food processor.
This sauces simmers all day to blend the flavours. Dinner can be on the table in no time after a hard day's work. There are so many chunky vegetables in this that the meat lovers won't even miss the meat :) This sauce makes a lot but freezes well. Created for Ready, Set, Cook! Winter 2005.
A great smooth pasta dish with a kick. Arrabiata means angry in Italian. By pushing the sauce through a mesh strainer or moulie makes the sauce like one you would find at an expensive Italian restaurant.
This is both healthy and delicious and best with fresh from the garden vegetables. Simply seasoned with salt, pepper, and lemon juice which I think enhances the natural flavors of the vegetables.
