I had to add a whole lot of ingredients to get the taste right for us. I found it much to bland with jusdt the tinned tomatoes. Perhaps it depends on the tomatoes? I added 2 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp dried italian herbs, 1 sprinkle of chilli flakes and a jar of organic tomato pasta sauce. Lots of ground black pepper. So I deviated so far from the recipe - but I did make it as written and then had to add all of the above.
Made recipe as written, except left out the celery, and topped with parmesan cheese. We all enjopyed it, especially the kids to our surprise because they were not used to veggies in their spaghetti., but ate their whole plate up. Very tasty and flavorful, and a great dinner for us. Made for Recipe Swap #50.
I used a red onion cause I had to use it. I used a 28 oz can diced tomatoes, without salt and added a large tomato I didn't want to waste. I used the zucchini and broccoli, but my son saw the zucchini LOL I told him it was not zucchini LOL I added mushrooms cause I like mushrooms in a spaghetti sauce. And DH wanted red wine in it, so I used 1/2 cup red wine. This is very yummy and I'll do it again. Thanks I'mPat :) Made for Potluck tag
FANTASTIC! I subbed the minced beef for 1 cup of TVP and 1 cup vegetarian beef style stock but otherwise made as directed. It was loved by the vego n meatlovers in the family. A great way to sneak all those extra vege into little kids too. Thanks for sharing Pat, it's a winner :)
A fabulous recipe thanks Pat! We really liked it as it had LOADS of veggies in it, making it light and full of flavour. I used all the suggested veggies, except the broccoli, and also added a little red pepper and a few leftover green beans. I made the full amount and put half of it into the freezer for a quick tasty meal in the future. I topped this with parmesan flakes and we both loved this for our tea last night! I will save and make this recipe again, as you certainly get your Five-a-Day in this sauce, which is brilliant. Made for Make my Recipe edition 8 in the Oz/NZ forum, Thanks again Pat for another great recipe. FT:-) or is that FS now!!
This is all tucked up in the freezer now . I did sample it and it was terrific. The only thing I left out was the broccoli as DD is not a fan .This will be just fabulous to bring out of the freezer at a desperate and dinnerless moment.
