Made From Scratch Tuesday 1/24

Do you have a go-to sauce or base? We do. In our house, the kids call it Toxic Green Sludge, which is pretty much what it looks like. I let them get away with calling it that because it's mostly spinach and any time I can squeeze some veggies in, I'm all for it no matter what they call it.

In a food processor, combine a 10 oz bag of spinach, one container of fresh mozzarella cheese, a few tablespoons Parmesan cheese,  basil, thyme, oregano, salt and a splash of olive oil.

Process until, well until it looks like toxic green sludge!

Once you have it made, you can use it as a dressing in a chilled pasta salad, or as a layer in lasagna, add chicken and stuff ravioli or shells, and the list goes on! It's a good base sauce to make on the weekends and use during the week when you don't have as much time to pull off a great dinner.

Now it's time to link up all of your creations!
Here are the rules:
1. You can link up as many posts as you'd like.
2. The post has to be made from scratch.
3. The post you link up MUST CONTAIN A RECIPE! 
4. If you want to put my button somewhere, that'd be cool. You can grab the code for the Made From Scratch Tuesday button on the top right of my sidebar.

Love the sauce that you and your kids came up with! It does look like it can be used in a variety of dishes. In following that theme, I linked up my red chile sauce which, in my home, gets used in many, many dishes - as a topping for eggs, grits, burritos, hamburgers - you name it. :) Thanks again for hosting!

Well, my recipe today isn't exactly made from scratch...sort of 'semi-homemade'...but it has been one of those weeks!

That sounds really yummy. I think I'll make some up and try it over fish and couscous. Thanks!
