Food processor is such a lifesaver for someone who doesn’t like chopping. I am so thankful for this machine whenever I have to finely chop some onion which can be a tearful job, and I can’t even do it that well.
A few days ago, I made some Lamb and Mushroom Meat Sauce. When I make meat sauce I always use fresh tomatoes and skip the canned one. I just love that fresh zingy flavor that bright up the sauce the way the preserved tomatoes could never do. I chopped nothing… all credit to this recipe goes to my food processor.
