Homegrown Tomato Spaghetti Sauce
- Leave a Comment
Thank goodness Ry likes tomatoes, because there are so many tomato sauces out there that are milk-free! I’m sure some of your family recipes don’t need any or much tweaking to be allergy friendly. My grandma’s spaghetti sauce is a simple family favorite that even the kids love.
This year we have an abundance of tomatoes in the garden and decided that we should use them any way we could think of for the next few weeks. I have forbidden myself from buying canned tomatoes at the store. Tonight we are making homemade spaghetti sauce with home grown tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes! Throw them in the food processor, and in the pot they go.
Sometimes the tricky part is the noodles. We have not had any identifiable reactions from pasta that was produced in a facility where eggs were also processed. We have had unexplained stomach aches that we suspect might have been from some pasta that was eaten at some point in the day that said “May contain egg” so we started avoiding those brands (like Barilla) along with anything that says it is produced on equipment that processes products with eggs.
DeCecco is a brand worth looking at. I’ve included a link here that you can use to buy in bulk. They have two facilities and one of them does not process any egg products. If you read the label and it says, “May contain egg” it is processed in the facility that has egg products. If it does not include that warning, it is processed in the egg-free facility. I verified this over the phone with the company on 9/11/17.
I am going to do a little research and find out more info on other pasta brands and post my findings. Let me know if you know of any safe brands!
