{FRESH Made Pasta Sauce}

Already on February 2, 2013, I came across one of my favorite blogs: Frugal Ain't Cheap where Italian born Daniela always presents remarkable tips and often recipes. She wrote: Pasta Sauce in 5 Minutes on that particular day and I saved it as it was so easy and healthy with FRESH ingredients. You can click the above hyperlink for Daniela's recipe! The bell peppers and cherry tomatoes we got at Costco's Wholesale.
Several times I made Daniela's yummy and quick Pasta Sauce, but only on May 23, I finally made some photos...
Using Trader Joe's Organic Whole Wheat Fusilli Pasta for a healthy diet.
Since we are shopping at Trader Joe's we also take the Pecorino Romano & Parmesan blend grated cheese with only 2% cholesterol and fat. Sodium is low too with only 3%.
Following Daniela's recipe above, you have a very quick and healthy vegetarian meal and I also do add Trader Joe's Beef-less Ground Beef to this FRESH Made Pasta Sauce.
Topped with the above mentioned grated cheese, served in a French Pillivuyt Sancerre, heated pasta bowl...
To the right of my plate is this French Baccarat crystal glass with 'AMOUR' engraved into it.
I also do have the 'LOVE' version from Baccarat.
With my supper, I do drink the freshly squeezed juice of one lemon (also from Costco).

Sharing some Blogger LOVE and thanks again Daniela for your worthwhile recipe!

  2. It looks great dear Mariette and I am gonna visit your Italian friend, as I adore Italian food, I make my own home made pasta when I'm in the mood for it. Many years I made home pasta, as there was not good pasta on sale here, but now there is, although never like the home made kind. Great hugs,

      Glad you like it and this is a great Italian version of health food. In Florida there are still NO Trader Joe's... Wonder why not? They came from Hawaii, via California to the East but not yet South!
      Hugs to you and I trust you as an excellent pasta maker.

  4. Hello Mariette, Pasta like this is one of my favorite meals. I usually use some form of canned tomato, but I get the kind without any added salt or flavorings. One addition you didn't mention was crushed red pepper flakes (served separately), which I love on spaghetti without, although some guests don't like hot spices.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      This comes quite close to the healthy Asian meals in a way. Easy to digst and healthy. The way you your canned tomato is still good, as long as the sodium is low. We get plenty of fresh tomatoes here all year but not at your part of he world. Crushed red pepper flakes I would love. Living in Indonesia I got quite addicted to the capsicum peppers that I ate on the side with most anything.
      Enjoy your Sunday evening and your new week.

  8. Cara Mariette, una ricetta più italiana di così non si può! Sto preparando anch'io il sugo di pomodoro con aglio e basilico...che squisitezza!
    ...ma un bicchiere di succo di limone....mi sembra un pò troppo acido....io metterò una bella birra fresca in tavola, però il tuo bicchiere con la scritta LOVE è bellissimo!
    Un caro abbraccio e buona domenica a voi!

    1. Cara Anna,
      Sì buon gusto una birra fresca ma l'alcol è anche zucchero e che è per il mio tipo diabete di II non buono. Perché ho già dal 2007 senza zucchero più rapidamente, per me quindi non è troppo acida...
      Anche buona domenica sera e un forte abbraccio,
      Mariette

    This pasta looks really good and yummy; I sometimes cook spaghetti for lunch but not this kind of healthy version(^^;) I love lemon juice as well especially hot summer day.

  13. Dearest Mariette,
    Thank you so much for sharing the Pasta sauce preparations. I did not realize that Trader Joe was a brand of Italian foods. I have been looking for whole wheat pasta as my husband's doctor suggested that he stay with whole grains to maintain his cholesterol. Thanks again.

    1. Dearest Munir,
      You are quite welcome! Trader Joe's is not really a brand for Italian foods alone; they have lots of products but very economical and more health conscious. For exactly the same reasons both of us eat mostly whole grains!
      Hugs to you,

  17. Eh la pasta è il nostro fiore all'occhiello cara Mariette! Deve essere stato buonissimo questo sugo, io però ci avrei abbinato un bel bicchiere di vino rosso. La limonata è perfetta per il caldo che c'è qui. Voglio RINGRAZARTI DI CUORE per esserti ricordata del mio compleanno, sei stata gentilissima. Perdona se rispondo solo ora ma oggi solamente ho acceso il pc, sono davvero presa molto da vari impegni. Alla prossima e grazie ancora. Paola

  18. Sai Paola, ci dà un pò la sensazione di essere in Italia... C'è molto sano per mangiare così. Sì, mio marito ha mangiatola anche con un bicchiere di vino rosso, ma per la mia dieta, prendo poco vino o alcool. È anche zucchero e non va bene per il diabete di tipo II. Ma prego, era un piacere per il tuo compleanno e non devi scusarti. Tutti noi abbiamo lo stesso problema di tempo che falta in tanto. Godetevi la vostra estate e mantenervi sano.
    Baci,
    Mariette

  19. The pasta sauce sounds very easy to make and healthy! These are two good things :-) And it certainly looks yummy. Your photos made me crave pasta! Mmm~~~!
    I love fresh squeezed juice. It's the best! I also like to warm lemon juice and add honey. It is very good when it's cold :-)

      Thanks for your visit. Well, after Asian food, we both do love Italian food and this is a yummy dish!
      In Indonesia I often ordered 'Jeruk Panas', hot orange juice and that was great. It is very healthy.
      Enjoy the remainder of this last week of June...
