Last night’s dinner consisted of this Butter Chicken. Butter chicken is an authentic Indian cuisine. It is a spicy tomato and butter sauce that is added to cooked cubed chicken. Done in less than 30 minutes. For those nights… when you really don’t know what to cook, you can make this butter chicken. It is spicy, but nothing a cold glass of milk can’t cure. …
But… I still think Chicken Pot Pie should be served often. It is such a comforting meal. I like the Marie Callender’s store version the best, but to be honest I haven’t bought them in years! This is a homemade pot pie and it was totally worth making!
My family loves spaghetti. I make it quite often. However, I have never made homemade spaghetti sauce before. I searched a few of my old family recipes and found this one. I am so glad that I did. This homemade spaghetti sauce is delicious. I was always afraid to make the sauce as it wouldn’t taste like the store-bought ones. Yes… I actually like all the store-bought kinds. I don’t have a favorite, but I am a traditional fan. Anyways, this is a very tasty homemade spaghetti sauce. My kid says that it is spicy, but we like it that way. I was surprised at how easy it was to make it. It does take time, so prepare yourself that way, but we loved it!
Do you remember the first time you ever made spaghetti?
I do. I was just setting out on my own as a college student. I lived in Utah at the time, and was staying in some housing on BYU campus, during the summer. I didn’t attend BYU, but wanted to get out on my own for the first time. Anyways, I was wanting to make dinner. Spaghetti seemed simple enough. I remember boiling the water for the noodles. Once the noodles were done, I remember dumping a jar of store-bought spaghetti sauce over it. That was it. No spices, no meat, no veggies… nothing.
I ate it because I was hungry, but I made it on my own for the very first time! I think I either under cooked or over cooked the noodles. Yea… it was fun times.
Fast Forward… 15 years. A homemade spaghetti sauce that is flavorful, spicy, full of character, and amazing! I have learned that variety is the spice of life. I have learned how to do so much more… and making this homemade spaghetti sauce was such a pleasure.
You can also use this as a pizza sauce.
You can also add hamburger, veggies, or whatever you would like to it. This is just a good base.
My daughter Bo loves spaghetti very much! She is always requesting it for dinner. I am happy to oblige because for me it is a very simple meal. I remember one time mentioning my meal plan to a family member and she said that she hardly every makes spaghetti.
