This weekend we harvested a ton of vegetables for our little garden. A few of you have asked what I consider to be a little garden, well our backyard is an acre big but my little garden is only 4 feet by 8 feet so relatively little compared to the size of our yard. We are hoping to expand it next year by another 4×8 feet. to grow more zucchini and less cucumbers. We have had so many cucumbers this year that I don’t think I want to eat cucumbers or grow them for a really long time.
We made a batch of Zucchini noodles or “Zoodles” this week and I recently learned that you can spiralize potatoes so I can going to try it out next week.
Anyways I made some ragu from the tomatoes and peppers from the garden.
Need: 1 lb of ground beef, sliced and diced peppers (3 total),sliced mushrooms, and homemade tomato sauce. You also will need your zoodles.
Cook your ground beef then strain out the fat, add in your seasonings (black pepper, sea salt and paprika). Add in your peppers (yellow and green) and mushrooms. Then simmer in your homemade tomato sauce. Lightly blanch your zoodles into the meat mix for about 3 minutes so that they don’t get soggy.
