Recipe-Spaghetti Leonardo

“ I was raised with home-made spaghetti sauce every week”, one thing is for sure, “  the smell of tomatoes and oregano  and basil is soothing to my soul.” I have re posted this recipe from  Kelly at the Spunky Coconut;  many  of her recipes are gluten-free.

Spaghetti Leonardo

Add to Crock pot:

4 cups chopped vine-ripened tomatoes

4 Italian sausage (casing removed)

1/2 an onion, chopped

1/4 tsp garlic

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


Set to 4 hours high.

After cooking throw in about 3 cups fresh chopped spinach to wilt.

I also added a drizzle of organic extra virgin olive oil, and a few cranks of fresh ground pepper.

Serve over noodles. I use Tinkyada.

She writes the reason why  she’s  calling it “Spaghetti Leonardo” .  Whilst looking for an Italian name, and who better to honor than this hero, Leonardo DiCaprio. No, it’s not his acting career, although  his movies are great.   It is  what Leonardo does in his free time. There’s  a link to one of  her  favorite organizations, the Natural Resources Defense Council. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the board members of the NRDC, along with Robert Redford.  If you can, check them out and give them your support too.
