Thread: Spaghetti & Tomato Sauce

    Default Spaghetti & Tomato Sauce

    A very simple and tasty meal. I minced a small yellow onion and sauteed it
    with three cloves of chopped garlic in a splash of olive oil. Low heat,
    stirring, until the onion was tender and translucent. I added this to a pot
    with <gasp> a jar of tomato sauce. I checked the label, folks, no HFCS or
    added sugar. It's just tomato sauce. I heated this up then added a tsp. of
    dried oregano, 1/2 tsp. dried basil. Simmered on very low heat for about an
    hour with frequent stirring.

    The sauce was spooned over spaghetti and sprinkled with freshly grated
    (albeit inexpensive store brand) Parmesan cheese. I baked some garlic
    "Texas toast" to go with it. All in all a very nice dinner. Leftovers for
    the freezer... or dinner again the day after tomorrow

    I like with tofu, or cottage cheese... Wife was aghast the first time she
    saw me do it. But then she tried and realized 'not bad'

    Lately, I really enjoy a hearty amount of garlic... Don't need a press.
    Not fancy store bought one anyway. Just press with a fork!

    That sounds great to me, Jill. I've been planning to make basically the
    same meal for a long time now. My only difference would be to add tons of
    basil, and fresh if it's available.

    This is also the time that I make a salad to go with it, right on the
    plate. With spaghetti and lasagna only, this is when I use the old cheapy
    mayo-ketchup mix dressing. For some reason, I love that taste mixed in with
    the spaghetti sauce.

    Yes, I do have a problem. More than one, in fact. It takes several
    attempts to get your reply to return in a reply. I finally gave up
    and just highlighted everything to reply and get it all. I definitely
    have options about what to do. It's rather drastic and I'd rather not
    take that road but if I have to, I will.

    We didn't have the overstuffed when I was a kid. But I used to eat the
    regular canned stuff with Kraft Parmesan on top and some dried parsley. I
    can't even imagine eating it now. Once I made my own ravioli there was just
    no comparison.

    Only if the water was salted. Or maybe some of that buggy King Arthur flour
    was added!

    That sounds like a problem with *your* newsreader. I see quoted text, no
    problem. And all I have to do is hit "Reply All" and voila! I'm at the
    bottom of a post.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy with this version of Windows Mail. I miss
    Outlook Express w/OE quotefix! But hey, when you buy a new computer they
    don't give you the option.

    At least I can read and post. I don't know what the hell Thunderbird did
    but I couldn't read or d/l any posts to/from RFC. Other ng's worked just
    fine. It pissed me off so I uninstalled it. Bits and pieces of it are
    still hanging around. I expect when I uninstall a program it will remove
    all traces. Not the case with Thunderbird. I ran a backup and could
    clearly see some pieces of Thunderbird are still there.

    Sorry, sf, but I'm not going to *buy* a newsreader. Agent or otherwise.
