Tomato sauce replacement

Leave a comment

Need a sauce for our faux orzo pasta. So we can a can of mixed vegetables and went from there.

Then we added a bit of oil and our favorite spices.  Of course the grinding came next.

To make the pasta, we made the noodle dough as usual, but used a cheese grater to make the rice like noodles.

  Then cooked and drained the noodles.

Add the sauce and the Parmesan cheese to the noodles and you are in heaven.


Cheap lard / oil.

Upset with the high price of lard and oil, then just make your own. Boil or bake a chicken. Take the liquid and put it into a heat proof container. Then put the container in the fridge to solidify. Ultimately you can take the while globs and use them in biscuits, frying, or even salad dressing. For salad dressing the globs need to go back to a liquid. Frying pans seem to clean easier when using your homemade lard in the frying pan.
