At the risk of Love fainting again...

I had some God Awful pasta sauce made mainly with V8 juice. 30 years later, I still shudder at the thought! (insert green barfy guy here).

Deep breath - I'm ok. Isn't it incredible what food associations and memories we have from long ago? Both good and bad.

Oh yes!! The stuff I was told was spaghetti as a child, that muck that comes out of the can - used to get served on toast for breakfast in the morning :blink: The joy upon arrival in London where there was a trattoria just around the corner from where I was living and the pure joy of discovering pasta and tomato sauces :D:rolleyes::o not like your momma used to serve :ph34r:

First, I agree with earlier sentiments about using a couple of teaspoons of the herbs, not tablespoons!

This reminded me of a memory from long ago, when my father would travel he hired a baby-sitter of sorts for me and my brother. Long story short, we wondered why her spaghetti sauce tasted funny. One day while she was making some, I tasted it and it tasted fine. Then she said something about having to add cinnamon (which she did), and then it tasted funny. That was her 'secret' ingredient, which imho does NOT belong in spaghetti sauce.

At the risk of offending everyone else who has already posted recipes, I would love to have yours l2t. I mean, who here doesn't want your recipes for everything? Yeah yeah, I said I wanted easy but we all know that yours will be amazingly delicious and worth whatever effort it takes.

If I want pasta and there isn't a jar of sauce to be found in the house I'll find my garlic, flatten 8 or 10 cloves of garlic, give them a few seconds to start smelling good in a pan and throw in a can of fire roasted tomatoes and some basil. The fact that it's pretty much whole cloves of garlic and tomatoes keeps my husband far far far away. :lol: He's also like, garlic much? I'm like, well it was the rest of the bulb... I would have added more. He thinks I'm crazy.

This is the real thing - bolognese sauce. My recipe is about two pages long to type so I looked for one that is quite similar. It is Mario Batali's version (with milk, IH!) and pancetta. It is also easier than my version. I make a big batch and freeze but you can easily half this. Some bolognese recipes use red wine, some white. I like white in this case but of course that is up to you. I also grate in some nutmeg (not already grated) for that elusive delicious flavour. Only a touch, though.

You're cute. :rolleyes: The recipe I posted below is easy but if you want I can type out a more complex version! :D

Mario Batali

omg... he is a GOD in the kitchen. Pretty easy on the eyes too. I wonder if I can find a video of him making the sauce. You know, because I'm a visual learner. B)

    • Its interesting you should say that. I don't normally drink alcohol, I've always felt it tasted like medicine - no idea why! -  but drank some sparkling wine recently out of politeness.  Oh the pain!  At my last appointment my gastroenterologist had asked me if I drank - she never told me why, but if that's what alcohol does to people with gastritis it should be the first thing to avoid I reckon. Also interesting that you had that as an initial diagnosis.  I too had what I am sure was gastritis pain before I was diagnosed.  I was on omeprazole for a month which took the pain away but omeprazole seems to cause D for me. The strange thing was after I stopped the omeprazole the D did not.  That was why I ended up having the scope.  In a way, I wonder if I would have ever been diagnosed had it not been for the gastritis and the omeprozole. 
    • Joseph, for the first 6 months at least, you might want to cook ALL fruits & veggies except maybe bananas & pears. Make it easier on your damaged gut to digest and allow it to heal faster. Also, home made bone broth is amazingly nutritious as well as healing. https://blog.paleohacks.com/bone-broth-recipe/#
    • Can you tell me if my symptoms can be caused by gluten intolerance? burning sensation in mouth (gums, lips) quickly rising blood sugar after eating gluten, then high heart rate I only eat gluten once a day. Later in the day, blood sugar won’t rise as much, but also goes down too much, despite eating a good combination of protein, carbs, veggies. No matter if I eat less or more. burning esophagus burning stomach stool that passes so quickly that I have bad cramps for a while afterwards and feel nauseous often joint pain itching burning skin constipation ringing in my ears nightmares  stiff muscles, especially in my arms anxiety after eatng gluten temper tantrum after eating gluten (crying, anger, anxiety, ocd thoughts) hunger after eating gluten; sometims for hours, even at night shortness of breath/air hunger/not being able to breathe in deeply yawning I am feeling so desperate. I had blood tests and biopsy and it showed no celiac disease. I do have symptoms of itching, burning mouth, high heart beat, nausea shortly after eating gluten, so I know I am sensitive. I tried to stop gluten and then got such bad hypoglycemia, that I did not know how to continue. So I tapered slowly. But in the meantime, not really getting better. The hypoglycemia is now worse and seems to have to do with my hormonal cycle, which is also messed up. Tryng to stop gluten actually worsened pre-existing mild hypoglycemia. Also when teying to stop, I felt very dizzy, as if my blood sugar was too low all the time (couldn’t measure, no meter back then). I got very anxious, a lot of itching, my menstrual cycle got messed up, pain in my calves and cramps in my feet. When I cut out a small bit, I had it milder. Especially the dizzyness, brain fog and not being able to think clear got better. Can I expect the hypoglycemia to get better?  I am so fed up with feeling sick all the time. But I am afraid too, what will hapoen when I stop, as I know the last time I tried was bad.  Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer my questions. Kirsty
    • You can be safe with just a general multivitamin.  Look for one that is gluten free.  Read our Newie 101 thread located under the “Coping” section of the forum for tips.  Browse through Celiac.com for more ideas.   Food is till the best source for vitamins and minerals, but sometime supplementation is needed.  I do not take any (took iron when I was first diagnosed since my anemia was severe), however, I make sure I eat a varied gluten-free diet and I try to avoid processed junk food.   You might look into avoiding nightshades for a while (white potatoes, tomatoes) to see if that helps with joint pain.  Besides celiac disease being ruled out (please make sure you had more than the TTG IgA and IgA deficiency test because not all celiacs test positive to the TTG like me), did they check for R. Arthritis?   I am sure others will contribute more soon.   Welcome to the forum!  
    • Hey Joseph!   You might re-think that gluten-free oatmeal.   For years,  oatmeal was prohibited.  Researchers eventually determined that some celiacs could have oatmeal as long as it is pure (no possibility of cross contamination from field to factory).  But some 10% of celiacs  still react to oatmeal.  Plus, there is a new controversy over sorted vs. dedicated grown oats.  So, best to avoid oats for the first six months and then experiment.   When my GI tract is inflamed from celiac disease (flare-up) from accidentally being exposed to gluten, I stick to well-cooked foods (even fruit).  It makes it easier to digest.  Once better, I go back to my normal gluten-free diet.
