Yummy! It smells so good in my shop today! I decided that I would cook supper for my ladies tonight as they both are going to be busy ! I thought a wonderful spaghetti would be great.  Then I thought I would do a thick meaty sauce but Mrs wanted a marinara type sauce, so that is what I made. I started with some red onion, green peppers and portobello mushrooms. I diced everything really fine, except the mushrooms, which I left a little bigger. To this  I added some light olive oil and salt and pepper. I allowed the veggies to sweat for a little bit until they started soften up. I then added some La San Marzano tomatoes and broke those up. Some tomato paste followed then some regular Ragu sauce because of time factors. As this was coming to a slow simmer, I finely chopped some of my garden fresh rosemary, oregano, parsley and a tiny bit of cilantro. I was able to pick up some basil from my local market, which completed the herb blend. I put this all together in the pot and let it simmer for about 3 hrs. I have my shop door open and folks wandered by saying “What smells so good”. I also cooked up some whole wheat spaghetti to mix into this wonderful sauce!

A woman even came into my shop to see my soaps and after we chatted for a while, I learned that she was Italian and a recent transplant to the city. Of course I had to have her taste my spaghetti sauce and she said it was fantastic. I’ll take that as a compliment any day. Thank you Franca!

Mrs and the girl both reported that the spaghetti was fantastic. It was just what my Mrs was looking for. I can’t wait to have some on my break later tonight!
