    Living car free...

    I've done it for 22 years.

    It's overrated.

    Just sayin'

    My wife has a fantastic recipe for a red pasta sauce.

    It's underrated.

    If living car-free is overrated, why have you done it for 22 years?
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    You already did, and were checkmated by the OP's response.

    Mrs Cyclaholic's Pasta sauce

    90g (3oz) butter
    1 tablespoon oil
    2 cloves garlic (Mr. Cyclaholic prefer 3 or 4 cloves )
    800g (28oz) whole tomatoes, pureed and strained (Mr Cyclaholic prefers a blend of fresh roma and cherry tomatoes, dipped in boiling water for about 45 seconds, then pureed and strained)
    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon rosemary
    1/2 teaspoon basil
    salt & pepper to taste

    Place butter and oil in pan, add crushed garlic, cook for 1 minute.
    Add tomatoes and remaining ingredients, and stir until combined.
    Simmer gently for 60 minutes, stirring occasionally.


    Don't be deceived by the simplicity of this recipe, the results are truly amazing! but you must use fresh garlic. It may be enjoyed immediately but reaches it's peak after being allowed to mature in the fridge for 24-48 hours, especially if using fresh tomatoes. Just place a batch in any clean non-metallic container and place it in the fridge. May be reheated in the microwave on low power setting.

    Enjoy

    I bet you're only 22 years old. The first 18 don't count so it's probably only 4 years. And those 4 don't count if you were in college so it's probably only 0 years. Lightweight.

    Know any good recipes?

    I thought I was just asking an innocent question; I didn't realize until later that the purpose of this thread is to be an a**hole to all and sundry. The OP's a troll, and so, sometimes, are you. But at least you have the virtue of having a mission, which is, as far as I can tell, to deflate LCF people who are getting a bit too puffed up about themselves. In this regard, you serve a valuable, if sometimes annoying, service. This other guy just wants to start fights for no reason at all.

    Deflating puffed up LCF people (riding on high horses) is a fair enuff description of one of my "missions." I think the intent of the OP's post is to serve that same mission.

    Wrong. You take trollery to new levels of artistry. You will live forever in the internet hall of shame...er, fame. This guy is not even in the same league with you.

    Not yet, but I soon will. I'm planning to serve it over brown rice instead of pasta, along with another recipe I picked up on LCF a couple years ago:



    Biftec Hinault


    Cut some sirloin beef in strips. Brown it briefly in hot olive oil, along with chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste. It should be browned but still rare. Add a spoonful of water and lots of chopped fresh basil and cook for another minute.
