During January, I was sick for half of the month. During the time I was sick, I was not hungry for any food. Towards the end of my sickness, I ended up craving BBQ chicken wings. I sent Hubby out to get me some frozen chicken wings so I could cook them up in the pressure cooker. They were delicious! I ended up eating a whole bunch of the chicken.
We still had a few of the frozen chicken wings leftover so I cooked up some more last Saturday when our boys were with their grandma. Hubby gave me some tips to make them even better. I’m sharing the improved recipe.
The other day I went an event. They served frozen lasagna. It made me crave homemade lasagna so I decided make some. I asked Hubby to get me the ingredients for my lasagna. Rather then using store bought sauce, I decided to use myspaghetti sauce recipe. I adapted the recipe for the pressure cooker.
The kitchen smelled amazing as it cooked! This is an easy recipe to put together. If you don’t want to use the pressure cooker, click on the link to the original recipe.
I use an Electric Pressure Cooker.
Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Stars of the recipe:
1 (28 oz.) or 2 (14.5 oz.) can of crushed tomatoes
I found this recipe and decided to make this for our dinner. We loved that it was made in the pressure cooker. Hubby got a lesson on how the pressure cooker works. He saw how long the recipe was suppose to take so that he could gauge what time dinner was going to be on the table. The problem is that it he didn’t factor in the fact that the pressure cooker has to reach pressure before it starts cooking the food.
Hubby and I loved this dinner. It was simple and delicious!
We ate it over rice that I had cooked earlier in the pressure cooker. I reheated it with butter, salt, and a Tablespoon or two of water. Then I warmed it up in the microwave for about 3 minutes. Afterwards I fluffed up the rice.
This would also be delicious over pasta. We are going to save the rest of the sauce and use it over pasta for a quick dinner. Yum!
I used basil garlic pork sausage from Fresh Thyme. It’s bulk sausage so you can chose how many sausage links you want to buy. I only bought two sausage links since they are huge. Then I cut each one into 4 pieces for a total of 8 pieces.
