Food and Recipes: June 2010 Archives

So the other week I had this idea to make my own pasta sauce out of nothing but fresh veggies.  Well I didn't have nearly enough tomatoes (about eight I think, maybe less), so by the time I added mushroom, an onion, lots of garlic, a couple of deseeded birds eye chilis, lots of fresh basil and a whole shredded carrot, it was really just a veggie mash.  Still pretty tomatoey and the chili replaced the salt quite nicely, but not saucy enough for pasta.

So an epic fail at a pasta sauce, but it did work beautifully in a vegetarian lasagna :)

Next time I'll triple or quadruple the tomatoes :)
