SAUCES AND GRAVIES

Check out the other MENUS – especially the AFC MAIN DISH MENU – for more sauces that have been incorporated into other recipes.

What would we do without sauces and gravies? We’d be chewing forever. It’s the sauce that guides our food to the gut. So why not make it compliment the chosen foods by highlighting the essence of what we consume?

Many a dish is consumed based solely on the quality of the sauce that covers it. Remember that the next time you make a sauce. It’s the sauce they talk about after the meal is done!

PASTA SAUCES

AFC MUSHROOM BOLOGNESE SAUCE © One of Steve’s favorite sauces was a bolognese sauce, essentially meat sauce with tomatoes, garlic and a bunch of other stuff. Both our mothers made it, but didn’t call it that. Spaghetti sauce they called it. All spaghetti sauce back then had meat in it. Times change, but sometimes we still like to go back to our childhood favorites, while now absent the cruelty. Red rice is our go to meat for tomato sauces now. Give it a try. See for yourself! Makes 10-1/2 cups

CREAMY BASIL PESTO  Made from fresh garlic, onion, basil and tofu with extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon. Combined with a cooked Kalamata olive, mushroom and roasted pepper antipasto with grape tomatoes. Flavored with whiskey. Tossed with bite-sized rigatoni pasta and topped with smoked almond crumbles and additional grape tomatoes. Extra special! Makes 6-8 serving

FAMILY SPAGHETTI SAUCE  The perfect spaghetti sauce for the whole family!  Makes about 7-8 cups

FAT-FREE ANIMAL-FREE TOMATO SAUCE Totally fat-free and animal-free? Are you kidding me? Don’t tell anyone. Just serve it. It satisfies like ground meat and feels like there is definitely a fine oil in this fine sauce! Go for it! Makes about 7 cups

LIQUORED UP MARYANNE AND MIKE MARINARA ‘Snowy’ sweet onion and garlic simmered with mushroom in a smoky tomato sauce flavored with red wine and Marsala wine!

Serve in a broiled sub roll drizzled with extra virgin oil, or over your favorite pasta! Makes 11 cups

OLD-STYLE SPAGHETTI SAUCE Marinate the broth overnight. Pan-smoke your spices the next day. Blend a bunch of parsley with orange and carrot juices. Add the tomato paste and mushrooms and that’s about it. It’s easier than the directions make it sound. And it tastes about as old-style as I’ve created yet. This is before the days of the marinara 15 minute sauces. Low fat though. That’s a plus – especially when it displays a rich feel factor! Choose your own toppers. I show mine! Makes 11-1/2 cups

RED AND GREASY Steve says he wants red and greasy – a favorite of his and mine. Lately we’ve been so low-fat or no-fat that we decided to treat ourselves with more-than-usual-fat. Lighten up.

TRULY TOMATO KALAMATA OLIVE BOLOGNAISE Garlic-flavored textured vegetable protein (TVP) creates the meaty texture, and the Kalamata olives combined with spices and herbs provides the meaty flavor/texture plus the wine flavor, absent the wine, in this special veggie version of Bolognaise, a classic Italian dish of meat, sauce, garlic, wine and pasta. Makes 8 cups
