Every kitchen needs a pressure cooker. If you didn't realize it.. let this be your wake up call! Pressure cooking causes intense heat and pressure to cook quicker and leave food more moist than usual. When cooking food at high pressure, the various flavors and elements of the dish have nowhere to go but to meld and mix with each other, so you'll often see richer flavor profiles. You also find that cook times are much lower than with any other method. You can cook a tender roast in a little over an hour with one of these things! Well enough of the talk.. how about an amazingly fresh and flavorful pasta dish in as little as 15 minutes flat? Try this recipe.. and feel free to put your own spin on it!

One of the gifts Dan received for his birthday last week was the food grinder and sausage stuffer for our Kitchen Aid, courtesy of my parents. We were excited to check out the new toy, so this weekend we made a trip to the grocery store and Bass Pro. (Gotta love a sporting goods store with an entire section dedicated to making sausage and jerky.) Once we got the hang of it, this was a fairly straightforward process — grind, season, stuff, cook, and eat. We made two kinds: a loose, spicy Italian sausage that we cooked up and used as a pizza topping, and a traditional summer sausage that we sliced and served. If you don’t have a meat grinder or a sausage stuffer, you can use a food processor and a pastry bag.
You can't buy this kind of quality from the store folks! Sure, if you're lucky, you can find a local mom & pop Italian restaurant and get this level of excellence or greater, but why not learn to make this stuff for yourself, in BULK instead! You'll pay pennies on the dollar vs the best expensive store brand, and you'll have the pride that comes from making something delicious! My father-in-law is 50% Italian/50% Polish. My Mother-in-law is a mix of German and Irish. She was lucky enough to have learned this Homemade Marinara Sauce Recipe from HER Italian mother-in-law, which was in-turn passed down from her Italian immigrant great grandmother! So there is a lot of history in this recipe, and we are keeping it going when we make this and share it with the world!
This classic marinara sauce takes time, so don't try to rush it! Be prepared for stirring every 15 minutes for many hours, which is PERFECT for a casual lazy Saturday or Sunday. It can be a pleasant experience, seeing and smelling your sauce as it matures throughout the day! But with that aside, this recipe is super easy and ANYONE CAN DO IT! Be smart and make a big batch like we do! You can freeze portions for easy quick and healthy weekday dinners! We simply store ours in Mason jars in the freezer. When thawed out, it still tastes fresh and amazing and WAY BETTER than any store bought marinara sauce!
