Here we are, officially in fall and yet my fridge is still stuffed with more tomatoes than I know what to do with ringtones herunterladen! Mostly I’ve been making and freezing marinara sauce, preoccupied as I am with the upcoming Vegan MoFo. (It hasn’t even started and already I’m on a roll, y’all!) Seeing as we polished off most of our leftovers over the weekend, last night I decided to look up and try a new recipe wie kann man videos von dailymotion herunterladen. Behold: Macaroni with “No Cook” Marinara Sauce!

The original – which I modified a wee bit – is called Seashells with Basil, Tomatoes, and Garlic, but my version has a nicer ringer to it, don’t you think avast kostenlos herunterladen deutsch? Plus these are many of the same ingredients I use to make marinara sauce, minus the heat. So “No Cook” Marinara Sauce it is!

I added sundried tomatoes and olives to the original; feel free to toss your own favorites in: bell peppers, maybe, or perhaps some steamed corn or grated carrots Download the fine catalogue. This is a quick and easy dish that you can make on the fly, or in advance: chop up the tomatoes in the morning and let them marinate until you get home from work (or come off a Doctor Who marathon slash bender) – then all you need to do is cook the pasta full versions for free. Allonsy!

And did I mention that it’s delicious? Because it is. All those fresh, juicy tomatoes, bursting in your mouth like little flavor bubbles herunterladen. Y-U-M, yum.

Ugh I am dreading the cold weather.
