Today Jennifer and I went to Costco for one thing: contact solution. We ended up forgetting that, but among the materials we bought, I came home and made sauce. Pasta sauce.
half a Costco package of ground beef
12 mild Italian sausage links
6 cans of diced tomatoes
1-2 cups of dried shitake mushrooms
I browned the meat separately, rinsed it, then mixed it in a pot. Then I blended the tomatoes into a puree, and did the same after reconstituting the mushrooms. After mixing in the seasonings, it's all cooking in two pots on the stove.
I doubt if I'll have any tonight after having a Costco hot dog, but I'm looking forward to the first time I get to use some of this sauce.
