In general I feel like my philosophy on life, for this particular moment in life that is, is "make it work". Really I think we all go through moments like that, moments where all you are doing is making it work. Right now in this moment I want to tell you that is perfectly okay! Okay, maybe that was mostly for me but it really is for you too. So, my "make it work" moment from yesterday. What do you do when you have no spaghetti sauce, and no tomato sauce or paste....and, the spaghetti, including ground turkey is already cooking?
"Make it Work" Spaghetti Sauce
1 can of whole peeled tomatoes (blended in the blender)
1 can of tomato soup
1/2 can of water
(all to taste)
What you get is kinda of a thin sauce, but it complements the meat so well. My kids loved it and I loved it. It's kind of satisfying to be able to pull something out of nowhere, especially in the kitchen. It feels like some sort of Martha Stewartish validation of the home. I'm not really sure, but it was amazing. Toss in some amazing new pasta I discovered (did you see the veggies in there?)
Do you have a "make it work" recipe or story?
