Very good tip. I too put mushrooms cut up real small in some recipes. However I think I will try the pulsing in food processor next time and see if its better. I put roasted bell peppers- all 3 colors and yellow squash and zucchini in mine today with just a 1/2pound extra lean ground beef so that he would "see" me cooking the meat. emoticon

He didn't complain so I guess it was okay.

Try it with your veggies. emoticon

Maybe the texture will be similar with zucchini or summer squash in there.


You are worth it!

If you miss the texture of ground beef (or just the "tooth" of its texture) in spaghetti sauce, just make your sauce with lots of mushrooms and pulse it in your food processor for a few seconds. It's terrific and has a totally different tooth than if you use chopped mushrooms at the beginning. emoticon


My husband also likes to add a tbsp or so of mascarpone cheese to the sauce to give it creaminess. emoticon

You are worth it!
