    What would you grow in a "Spaghetti Garden"?

    No, you cannot grow the noodles.  However, you can grow the ingredients that would go into the spaghetti sauce recipe. What would you grow?

    I would grow Spaghetti Squash, Tomatoes, Peppers (some gren, spicy and red), onions, garlic, Basil and Oregano.  I already have my garden started for this year with many of these plants.  I have zuccini and long neck yellow squash, cucumbers, three different types of tomatoes and three different types of peppers, lettuc, spinach and chives.  These are all good frozen and used in fresh stir fries added to rice.

      Nice garden, Debra. Will you grow tomatoes for the sauce?

      Yes. I plan on make my own sauces.  We shall see what I get.  I have to battle the deer, and the bugs, but I think I got them fixed this year, but you never know around here. You can see them on my blog  http://mypersonalgardening.blogspot.com/

    I agree with Debra Allen. I also add zucchini to my spaghetti sauce. At the rate of about 2-3 small ones per canner load of sauce. The peelings of zucchini can also be used in place of pasta noodles.

      I never heard of zucchini in spaghetti sauce. I bet it is good.

    Do not forget the turmeric, thyme, yellow/orange peppers, and parsley.

      We also must not forget the sweet and Spanish onions.

      I have never put turmeric or peppers in my spaghetti sauce, but that sure sounds good.

      I use turmeric in my daily salad with pasta and tomato sauce. It is a recipe in my Hubs.

    For sauce:Tomatoes, onions,  pepper, garlic, parsley, oregano, basil..

    I love spaghetti squash. A vegetable spiralizer is good to make zucchini spiral. A good old box shreddar can turn and yet into a pasta substitute.

    My favorite is to "grow the sauce." - even if it is just herbs and garlic and served over the best authentic pasta.

      I agree, Patsy - with  a good sauce you do need the best authentic pasta.
