Top Rated Pasta Sauce Recipes

Pasta Sauce
Every August my parents invest an entire day to crushing and jarring fresh tomatoes to use for sauce throughout the year. It’s a time-consuming and labored process, but it couldn’t be more worth it. There are few things in the world that make the world melt away than slurping up some hot fresh chunks of Mom’s tomato sauce. My parents are happy to send me off with a jar when I visit, but I usually (lovingly) try and sneak an extra jar or two from their storage cabinet. I am certain that there is no bank robber or jewel thief in the world that feels the exuberance I feel when I get away with this! This sauce is that good. If you do not have access to fresh crushed tomatoes, you can use your go-to brand-name canned crushed tomatoes instead… which I may have to do now that my parents will have read that I’ve been swiping their jars… The process is simple and you may already have most of the ingredients in your pantry, but it requires making a large batch and about a 45-minute simmering period, so all of the flavors can marry, and make sure to taste as you go. This recipe is how our family enjoys it, but feel free to add a little more or less of anything listed below. The good thing is you will have plenty left over to either use throughout the week, or freeze for any recipe that calls for tomato sauce later on.

Best Turkey Tetrazzini with Mushrooms, Bacon, Garlic, and Herbs
Turkey Tetrazzini is a fancy name for a turkey casserole with a cream sauce, mushrooms, and peas, and we've always used it for a leftover dish after Thanksgiving when turkey is so abundant. But, the truth is, it's great anytime you have some leftover turkey or chicken. Turkey Tetrazzini can taste slightly bland so my version includes some garlic, bacon, and herbs to punch up the the flavor of the sauce. Dare I say, "BAM?"

Equally as good as the classic
Most everyone has an opinion about meatloaf. Some love its homey comfort made from their mom’s recipe. Some think of it as a heavy-duty boring blast from the past. Some would never eat it. Enter rice and lentil loaf with mass appeal! Whether you’re a meat eater, vegetarian or trying to cut meat from your meals more often (think Meatless Monday), this loaf is a great option for you to try. Whatever your opinion of the classic dish, this recipe is meatloaf-like enough for fans, but different enough for meatloaf foes. The addition of rice, lentils and vegetables makes it a healthy dish, and although it has almost the same texture as meatloaf, it gives you the chance to try something a little out-of-the ordinary. Best of all, the leftovers are amazing, cold and straight from the fridge!
