Pasta Sauce

I recently began making my own pasta sauce using tomato paste because I don’t like the chunks of tomatoes that come in the store bought jars. I’ve never written anything down but have just added ingredients ‘to taste’ as I’ve gone along, here is the general recipe:

Polenta Lasagna

I often make this without the fake meat and cheese and add more zucchini (about 2 med.), peppers, and mushrooms, just to increase the veggie servings and keep it simple. It is good both ways!

Mixed-bean Casserole with Sausage

This comes from the McDougall newsletter. I made this in the crockpot last Friday, and we are STILL eating it! It makes an enormous amount.
