New Recipe

Not much going on here at the farm, just the same old busy! I have a wonderful (or at least I think it's wonderful, my own creation) recipe to share with evryone. It's easy, not too terribly time consuming, you can fix it and walk away dish. It uses many of the fresh herbs that are coming in right now, local grass fed ground beef, and as you will discover as I add more recipes, it's Italian.

Rigatoni A La Marchetti

1    Pound of Grass Fed Ground Beef

1    Medium Onion, course diced

1    Medium Green Pepper, course diced

4    Cloves Garlic, crushed (you can add more garlic or even garlic powder)

2    Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2    Cups Tomatoes, skinned and diced

1    Large Can or Jar of Premade Spaghetti Sauce

2    Cups Water

2    Handfulls of fine chopped fresh flat leaf Parsley (this equals about a half a cup or better)

4    Tablespoons fine chopped Oregano

4    Tablespoons fine chopped Basil

1    Tablespoon fresh Thyme

1/2  Teaspoon ground Cloves

1    Teaspoon Beef Boulion

1    Tablespoon Worchestershire Sauce

1    Pound Box of Rigatoni

Salt & Pepper to taste

In an extra large skillet, add olive oil, onions, green pepper, garlic and ground beef. Saute until beef is cooked through and other ingredients are soft. Add everything else on the list except the Rigatoni. Bring to a slow boil. Add the Rigatoni, reduce heat to Low and let simmer (15 to 25 minutes) until the Rigatoni is done to your liking. Top with Parmesean cheese and fresh chopped parsley. **if the sauce is too watery, you can add small amounts of cornstarch until it thickens**

By the way, if you happen to be like me and don't really care for breakfast foods...this is awesome cold in the morning, just like cold pizza! I hope some of you will try this.
