A tasty pasta

with one comment

Starting from a cold pan, fry two slices of bacon, chopping into pieces with the spatula as they cook.

Add 1 chopped yellow onion and 3 cloves garlic, minced. Cook till the onion is lightly browned.

Fill the pot with tomatoes. I added about 5 large frozen tomatoes saved from the summer farmer’s market; also a turkey stock cube, a spoonful of dried oregano, salt, pepper, and fennel seeds, then covered the pot and cooked on high, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes melted, and then blended them with a stick blender.

Added a couple of cubes of frozen basil, about 1 cup of breadcrumbs (I had made these from blitzed up ends of New York Times bread, and was keeping them in a jar in the pantry) to thicken the sauce, added some frozen spinach, simmered for a bit, then poured over whole wheat rotini and cubed fresh mozzarella.
