CarolJane - Waikato is talking about growing Capsicum, Carrot, Celery, Chilli, Herbs, Pumpkin, Silverbeet, Tomato, Zucchini from Waikato

Garden in progress

The freezer is having a clean out of late to make way for new goodies soon to come. So out with some PASTA sauce to go with 20 meat balls. The pasta sauce will have in it TOMATOES (stands to reason), ONIONS, GARLIC, ZUCCHINI, PUMPKIN, CAPSICUM, CARROTSSILVERBEETCHILLI and FRESH HERBSI will cook the Meatballs throw in the Pasta Sauce and simmer the lot whilst some Vermicilli is cooking. Then it will be dish up time. I will get 4 meals from that lot. Such an inexpensive meal as all the veg are from my garden and it is so easy to make a nutritious meal or 4.  


Gather up lots of TOMATOES and whatever other vege are available. Cut them up and put in a large roasting dish with a drizzle of Olive oil, salt and ground pepper and a dash of white wine vinegar and pop in a low heat oven for a couple of hours, giving them a stir every 1/2 hour. Make sure they are cooked then cool them down before putting them in a food proccessor. Pop into heat jars and seal or put in the freezer.
