Smitten Meets HEAB

by HEAB on February 26, 2010

Last week, CD and I made the most amazing tomato sauce from Smitten Kitchen. The sauce was simple and delicious. Therefore, I’m not sure what possessed me to doctor it up, but I did. :)

I present to you I’m Smitten with Marinutta Sauce


I followed Smitten’s recipe, but used 2 TBSP butter instead of 4. While the sauce simmered, I browned 1 lb. of grass fed finished beef in a skillet and added it to the sauce after both were done cooking. I then stirred in 2 TBSP of Nuttzo Nut Butter. We ate the sauce over raw spiralized zucchini squash, cooked spaghetti squash, and steamed Brussels. This was so good. I loved the addition of the meat, and the occasional hazelnut chunk from the Nuttzo. All that remained on my plate were some zucchini squash noodles. I don’t know…just wasn’t feeling them that night. However, they sure tasted good the next morning at breakfast!


First, I cooked 2 strips of bacon and then in the same skillet, I sauteed my leftover squash with several handfuls of spinach. When my veggies were done cooking, I added two eggs to the mix and topped my mess with some cream cheese. Such a satisfying brekkie.

I haven’t talked much about my exercise lately. I’ve just been walking everyday for about an hour. That’s it. No yoga this week – taking it easy and enjoying the sunshine. I’m in the less is more zone and feeling GREAT. :)
