Saucing it up!

Jen has had her nose stuck in a book ALL weekend long.  You really need to finish the Twilight series and give us more bloggy time!!! Can't a minkee get some love around here!?!  Jen, we're bored.  Give a minkee something to do!

I guess that's all it took to get some minkee attention around here.  She was nice enough to let us help make the 'sauuuccccceeee' for dinner.  We helped make a fresh tomato sauce to top some cooked pasta.

We were thoughtful enough to leave out the green pepper because we know it gives Jen heartburn!  We don't want her to be uncomfortable (o.k., it isn't really in the sauce, we just wanted to be good little minkees!

Do you have too many tomatoes coming out of your garden this time of year?  Try this recipe.  It is delicious.  (Make sure your helpers are well protected.  I don't recommend letting a knit animal dicing the tomatoes, it gets pretty messy!

Fresh Tomato Sauce


4 tomatoes ~ diced


3 cloves garlic ~ minced


1/2 handful of fresh basil~ chopped


1/4 c. EVOO


Salt and Pepper to taste


1/4 c. Parmesan (you can add it to the sauce or use as garnish)


Leave out at room temperature for at least 2 hours, serve over cooked pasta


This recipe can also be used to make bruschetta* as well.  I usually add about 1/4c. white onion if I am making bruschetta. 


* Bruschetta is simply a loaf of French/Vienna bread (or whatever you choose) toasted, with the sauce served on top.  I like to use my panini maker to get the bread even and flat. 


Delicious!  Minkees out!


Let us know if you give it a try.  We are always curious how our recipes go over.

So what was on the Minkee's heads a couple posts ago?

I love the measuring spoon on the head in this post.

That recipe sounds delicious...I'll have to try it, can you send a Minkee over to be my assistant?
