Mosaic Monday - Home Made Pasta Sauce

I have been given quite a few tomatoes and needed to make them into something before they spoiled.  I decided to make some home made tomato pasta sauce.

I cut the tomatoes into small pieces.  I cut out the bad spots on those which had some.  I placed them into the food processor. 

I poured them into a large measuring cup until I had processed them all. I had to do this several times to get enough for a good amount of sauce.  I put it in the microwave to reduce the liquid into a more sauce consistency.

Once it was thicker, I added seasonings like dry onion flakes, steak spices, garlic powder and salt and pepper. 

I added a can of mushrooms to add some texture and flavor.  Back into the microwave to heat all the ingredients.

I served it on whole wheat pasta with a bit of old cheddar grated on top. 
I pulled out the sunflower fabric as a background for this photo. I added my yellow sunflower vase and used my yellow mug with chai tea.

  1. Oh that does look yummy. Fresh tomatoes, so good and now lost until next season~

  2. I've never made fresh tomato sauce but can imagine how good it tastes after hearing how you made yours. I turned the last of my home grown green tomatoes into 3 more jars of chutney for the pantry, Bon appetit!

  3. Hi Sylvia, how nice it must be to have good fresh tomato sauce to enjoy. Yum!
