No-Tomato Spaghetti Sauce is my recipe of the day. It replaces my scheduled post for Danish Peppernuts cookies. I had planned those for Christmas Sweets Week. But I only managed to bake them up yesterday, late in the afternoon. And silly me. I forgot to put the sugar in.

So let’s move on to other recipes, shall we? The “Nomato” is a recipe for cooked marinara that is made without tomato products or tomato at all. Beware though, if you serve this to someone who is nightshade intolerant, that despite having no tomatoes, it is not nightshade free.

Nightshades, as foods, contains alkaloids. Tomatoes are one, and also peppers, eggplants and potatoes.  Peppers are the ingredient to watch here.

The Nomato sauce tastes surprisingly similar to pasta sauce, although you can tell it has no tomato. But it is very close and enjoyable.

I don’t have issues with tomatoes. But  I  did enjoy this using a variety of vegetables. Occasionally I might get a CSA box and need to find something to do with the contents. Or lately I have been buying boxes of produce from the FlashFood app. Those I need to use within  a couple of days and there is no telling what I might get. If you want more info on the app, comment and I will get back to you.
