Summer always seems to get away just a little too quickly -- and takes its bounty of juicy produce with it. So preserve a small part of the season: Gather as many beautiful, just-picked tomatoes as you can find, cook up a big pot of sauce, and stow containers of it in your freezer. As the weather cools and farm freshness fades from memory, the time will be perfectly ripe to pull out some sauce, heat it up, and settle in for a comforting bowl of pasta.The concentrated flavor of slowly cooked tomatoes gives pasta a bushel of tastes -- and a dose of the antioxidant lycopene, too.

Fresh Tomato Sauce Recipe

Portions of Pasta

The recipe above makes enough sauce for three spaghetti dinners for four -- use 12 ounces of pasta, 3 cups of sauce, and 1 ounce of Parmesan cheese for each dinner. (Freeze sauce in 3-cup portions, or in smaller amounts for individual servings.)

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
