Garden Fresh Spaghetti

 I went down to the garden yesterday morning and came back with this.  Some nice tomatoes.

 Basil, oregano and thyme.

 Celery....nothing quite like homegrown celery.

 A sweet onion from the farm market.

 Time for some marinara sauce.  I like to add some carrots for sweetness.

 I pureed it with a stick blender and added some meatballs.

 I always mix my pasta with some sauce before serving.

 And then add extra sauce on top.


Then serve it with some grated Pecorino-Romano.  Mangia!

You're ahead of me but maybe I'll have tomatoes soon.

I've finally put a tour of the garden up on my blog today.

Nothing like using veggies from your own garden to make a GREAT meal. LOOKS delicious. The carrots add a nice touch, never thought of that????

beautiful, what could be better!
That looks so delicious!

I can pick a few tomatoes every day now :-) Can't remember when that happened the last time :-) But nothing else have worked at all :-) Well, lots of black currents and goose berries and it will be a great apple year.

Have a great day!

I have never seen carrots in spaghetti sauce... I would think it would sweeten it up a little. I just put a little sugar in mine, but we rarely use sauce anymore, going for olive oil instead.
