homemade spaghetti sauce

Perhaps this was a one-off. Or perhaps I will revisit this.

spaghetti sauceI had planned spaghetti for dinner. However, I had no spaghetti sauce. I did however have a large tomato from the grocery store of which I had only used a slice. There was also a ripe tomato in our container garden along with a ripe bell pepper.

I chopped everything up, coated a saucepan with olive oil, and put in the bell pepper. I added the tomato, threw in a splash of vegetable broth, and let everything simmer. I added cumin, coriander, oregano, minced onion, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. I smoothed everything out with my immersion blender, and added the better part of a tube of tomato paste plus a dash of balsamic vinegar. I stirred everything, simmered some more, and mixed it with the pasta topped with hot links.

Great dinner!
