Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Zucchini & Tomato Pasta Sauce









From my freezer this week I pulled out a bag of frozen zucchini spears and a bag of frozen tomatoes to make a sauce for pasta.  I sauteed an onion first then added the frozen items. 

 

Once they were cooked down I added a piece of my frozen chopped basil (not pictured), a teaspoon of sugar, salt and pepper.  Using the stick blender I pureed the whole thingand served it over angel hair pasta and meatballs.  It was delicious.

"The Italian" makes a red sauce with chunks of zucchini in it. I have never had a sauce made like this though. I bet it was great!

That looks delicious. I like the green color and inviting texture.

Posts like this make me want to run out and buy an extra freezer. My bottom freezer of my refrigerator just doesn't do it! But I would have to put it in a closet!

I wish I had all of the veggies that you used in this recipe! We don't have a freezer right now, so we are limited to what I managed to can.

This summer, I was drowning in zucchini... but sheesh, I would love to be cooking some right now!
