|Canned, dried, and overwintered( squash)produce from the garden|
It's still March and that means crockpots are still a viable form of cooking. As I was going to be gone all afternoon, it always proves to be a great solution for supper.
So, here goes the supper prep. It was going to be the classic spaghetti sauce...with a twist. (That ridged orange object on the right hand side should clue you in as to the twist!)
Yep, the classic ingredients of tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, herbs and some dried tomatoes.....along with this beauty! I had a few of these left over from the winter and thought, why not add them to the mix? After all, squash is full of beta carotene and has that sweet nutty flavor profile, and that would be great in my sauce. Besides, it's an absolutely amazing way to add extra nutrients and fiber to the meal without the family being aware of its existence.
