My quest to lose those 10, (oops I mean 15 lbs) begins today! I signed up for a “Cardio Dance” class with my friend Andrea, which begins tonight. We meet twice a week for an hour for the next 5 weeks. So I decided I needed to make a quick easy meal before I go, what to make that won’t be too filling but filling enough to give me energy (I’m going to need it!). I made a really nice mushroom salad, followed with whole wheat tortellini with marinara sauce and a side of bruchetta. It took me 10...

Dinner-Ahh Spaghetti Sauce

Posted by on Aug 18, 2009 in Blog

Years ago I lived and worked in Brooklyn, New York. I worked in a department store with a lady named Esther, she was a typical New Yorker (at least in my mind), she told you exactly what she thought, she didn’t mince words, I loved her dearly, if she’s still around she’s probably 90. She gave me a wonderful spaghetti sauce recipe I use to this day, I’d like to share it with you and what’s great about it, its Vegetarian!Tribute to Esther Spaghetti Sauce1 tablespoon olive oil1 whole...
