Julie’s Spaghetti & Fire Recipe

Spaghetti is one of my favorite Italian dishes!  Sometimes I like to play with the recipes and add a little fire to the sauce to really give it a different feel.

Ingredients:

1 Tblspn Butter or Tblsn Coconut Oil

1 Yellow Onion or Vivaldi if you can find them – finely diced

2 Garlic Cloves – Minced

4-5 Roma Tomatoes – diced

1 can Muir Glen Fire Roasted diced Tomatoes – sometimes I chop these extra so it’s not so chunky

4 Crimini Mushrooms – Sliced Thin

4 Button Mushroom – Sliced Thin

Large Handful Kalamata Olives – halved

1 Tablespoon chopped parsley

1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes – add more if you like more fire

1/4 cup heavy cream

Parmesan Cheese

Sea Salt & Pepper

Few Basil Leaves- Chopped

Bay Leaf if you like a sweetness in your sauce

 

Directions:

Heat pan with Butter or Oil

Add Onion, Saute for a few minutes until soft

Add Garlic and saute for a minute more

Add Tomatoes, fresh and canned, mushrooms, olives, red pepper flakes, parsley, salt and pepper to taste, add bay leaf

Bring to a boil, then simmer for a few hours or at least one uncovered

Add heavy cream on simmer, mix well

Add a little fresh Basil on top and sprinkle with fresh Parmesan Cheese!

 

*Oh and hey, Don’t forget to make your spaghetti noodles about 15 minutes before done. Salt your water while water is heating up to a rolling boil. Add your noodles, turn down flame to medium high-ish – separate noodles  with a fork and wait alloted time on package!

You may add any meat that lights your fire!  We are meatless in this recipe!

Voila! Enjoy with a salad, french bread and a nice glass of Cabarnet!

Why Lemon and Warm Water in the Morning?

What can Lemon Juice and Warm Water do for you?

Ritual Creation: Drink Warm Lemon Water with The Morning Sun

Well for starters drinking it in the morning will help your body get going.  By get going, I mean it alerts and awakens your lymph system, digestive system and the smell of lemon makes one feel refreshed.

Lemons naturally assist in hydration and staying hydrated helps you to avoid, adrenal fatigue (which I am working with right now). When your body is seriously lagging and is in a state of chronic dehydration, your adrenals cannot do their best to control your cortisol levels, which manages how you manage stress.  These two little glands are vital to keeping your body and mind in a top functioning state.

Lemons contain Vitamin C, an antioxidant, which helps to boost your immune system and keep your skin clear as it assists in ridding your body of toxins.

Lemons are an Alkaline Food which means they are not acidic.  One would think they are acidic because they are a citrus fruit, however they are an Alkaline which is needed to keep the body healthy and balanced.  Too much acidity knocks your body into a state of panic and it has to work overtime to fight off infections and illness of all kinds.

The Vibrant and Tangy Lemon is not to be overlooked!  Enjoy!
