I was going to make lasagna for dinner tonight, but I hadn’t fully taken into account one of the items on my to do list: Have tumor removed. For some reason I mistook the word benign for painless. I seriously put it on my to do list as if I was just having my teeth cleaned. By midday the anesthesia had worn off and I was quite aware that I had had surgery on my head. Fortunately, my older kids took over watching my 4 year old and preparing the house for tomorrow evening’s party. The spaghetti sauce I made yesterday to use in lasagna was instead reheated and served over pasta.
In the summer when I have plenty of tomatoes I enjoy making spaghetti sauce from scratch, but when fresh tomatoes are scarce I make this easy recipe.
- 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 15 oz. can tomato sauce
- ½ cup diced onion
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning (How to make Italian Seasoning)
- Combine all of the ingredients in a large sauce pan.
- Bring to a boil, then lower temperature and simmer uncovered for at least 30 minutes*.
- After the sauce has simmered you can add ½ – 1 pound cooked and drained ground beef or turkey if you wish.
I have a riding lesson tomorrow morning. I have checked my helmet and it doesn’t seem like it is going to rub too much on my stitches, so I am going forward with my lesson because yes, I have a really flat learning curve.
