My Spaghetti

What do you do with a dozen Roma tomatoes that disparately need to used? Make spaghetti. All part of  the proper care and feeding of my curmudgeon.

I chopped about a dozen tomatoes and put them in a sauce pan with a little salted water. They boiled about an hour. Poured back in the pan added 4 beef bouillon cubes, a little more salt, minced onion,  and tomato paste and balsamic vinegar. Blended it till smooth in myVita mix, and then poured back into the pan
I cooked it for anther 45 minutes, added Italian seasoning. 
In a large skillet browned a pound of ground beef, celery, onion and green pepper. salt pepper and Italian seasoning. 
Next put pasta on to boil. cook to package instructions, drain, add pack to pot with butter parley and basil. mix well. 
Add sauce to ground beef, pour over pasta and serve  yum. The curmudgeon said it was so disgusting that I could torture him again with in any time. ha ha
