Simply Sunday~Low Carb "Spaghetti" made with fresh tomatoes!

Good morning friends. Last night I tried making meat sauce with fresh tomatoes. Not really sure of my recipe but will try to recall it so you can use it and I can keep track of it!
Here is the finished product

For the sauce I started out with 2 lbs of Roma tomatoes. I boiled them for about 3 minutes or until the skins started to rip. Take them out and soak them for a bit in a bowl of cold water and ice cubes. Cool for a few minutes and peel. I then chopped them up, along with some onion and green pepper. Tossed with a bit of olive oil and seasoned with Italian Seasoning, fresh garlic, salt, pepper and fresh basil. Cooked at 250 for about an hour or until juicy. 

In the meantime I cooked some Italian ground sausage, ground beef, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, mushrooms in a frying pan.  I did add about a cup of Kirklands Marinara Sauce from Kirklands and let it simmer.

After the tomato mixture had cooked and got juicy, I added it all to a big pot. We needed a bit more liquid so my husband added about 1/4 cup of red wine. It was delicious!! 

For the Zoodle Recipe - we followed this one but omitted the almond flour and added Parmesan cheese. Click here for that recipe. They were so yummy, especially after I added the Parmesan.

I am not sure of the carb count- I hate that tomatoes and onions add up so fast with carbs but I did not want to use canned ones. 

I hope you can try and enjoy! 

Yum- days later made this :
