Jackson/Hansen Spagghetti

Partially following my mother's very loose recipe and with some improvisations of our own... we made a very yummy Spaghetti dinner tonight!

First we browned 1lb of hamburger in the pan with a bunch of chopped Hermiston Sweet Onion and some chopped garlic! When it was browned we added some Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper.
Then it was 23oz of Tomatoe sauce and 3 cups of chopped tomatoes (mostly Roma and a few Sweet 100's all from Mom and Dad's Garden)!
Along with some shredded up basil (via Chris' garden) we chopped in the chopper with some of that tomato!...
We added a few sprinkles of the Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto mix in the above picture (Tastefully Simple product) and 1/4c brown sugar.

There's our spaghetti noodles all cooked and such.

Josh felt he needed to add some pizzaz. So he added a jalepeno and a garden salsa pepper from Chris' garden in his.
Josh's spicy scetti
Brittany tossed together a salad of baby spinach, sweet 100 cherrie tomatoes, chopped apple, and chopped cucumber (also from Mom and Dad Hansens garden)
And we have a meal!!
It was delicious!!!
(Also, there's Brittany's yummy drink concoction.... to be posted)


  1. Sounds super delicious! You really can't beat a fresh homemade pasta sauce. I bet that fresh Basil was amazing! Talking about all that fresh produce is making me hungry...

  2. I think the freshness of a lot of the ingredients contributed greatly to the fact that this simple dish was.. not fancy... but SOOO YUMMY!!
