I’ve had some great luck so far this tomato season making sauce from scratch, at first I couldn’t believe how easy it was! My endeavor today consisted of sauteing green onions, garlic, bell peppers, mushrooms, and basil in olive oil while blending up a blenderful of tomatoes from the backyard. I added some paprika, pepper, and Italian seasonings to the saute, then the blended tomatoes, and simmered it down for about two hours. I finished it off by adding some sauteed Tofurkey Italian sausage.

Here’s the whole mix over some toasted Mini Spinach Pizzas from Trader Joe’s.
