Homemade Spaghetti


When I’m in the mood, I just love cooking in the kitchen.  And it just so happened to be a spaghetti day.  I didn’t really have a recipe to follow on this one—I just kind of put together anything I wanted to inside the pot.  It’s my dinner, after all.  Needless to say, it turned out just fine—a big batch of homemade goodness to last the next few days.

Ingredients I tossed together:

  • Organic durum wheat Capellini noodles
  • Ground turkey breast
  • Vidalia onions
  • Green bell peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomato Basil pasta sauce

I try to get most of my ingredients fresh from the City Market as a first resort and the Whole Foods Market health food store as a second resort.  The farmers only bring and sell a limited variety from the farm, you know.

But you can’t get much fresher than getting your vegetables from farmers who just plucked them from the ground a few hours earlier.  I just LOVE it!  Healthy, fresh, ripe vegetables are the best and make your dinner taste so divine, dahling.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, try making your own spaghetti dinner without a recipe and just toss together any and everything you want to into the pot.  It’s your spaghetti dinner, after all, so who cares?

Take-Away Life Lesson:  When you use fresh produce just plucked from the ground, your dinner tastes so much better and fresher than using store-bought produce that had to travel country miles and sit a few days just to get to the local grocery store where you are.  Eww.  You deserve better.
