Summer Sauce, A Family Summertime Favorite

Our garden is finally producing, and its HEAVEN! You may remember my earlier post about cheap garden boxes, well they have worked out beautifully, and we are reaping the rewards in the kitchen!  I love Zucchini, and everything that you make with it, I am seriously one of those rare people who NEVER gets tired of it.  I also love spaghetti, and love to fill my sauce with hearty cut veggies sometimes, instead of meat.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE meat, but in the summer…when its hot outside, and my garden is bursting with veggies, THIS sauce is absolutely perfect.

“Summer Sauce”

1 medium onion cut up

A couple of cloves of garlic- chopped

Basil to season- fresh is best, but dried will do

Cut up veggies as you have them- I like to use 1 large Zucchini, 1 large squash, a couple of large tomatoes, and 1 large green tomato,  (if you have never cooked with green tomatoes, you are missing out!)

1 can tomato sauce

1 cup Heavy Cream

1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese


Sautee the Onions, Zucchini, Garlic and Squash in some Olive Oil until they soften up

Season with the Basil, and other herbs you enjoy

Add in the tomatoes and stir well

Add the Can of tomato sauce, and the whipping cream

Simmer the sauce for a few minutes then add the parmesan cheese – if you want to thicken it a bit you can take  2 TBSP of flour and mix with about 1/4 cup of milk till you get a thick soupy consistency- then slowly stir that into your sauce.

Salt to flavor


Serve over Angel Hair Pasta- or if you have it spaghetti Squash mmmm…
