    I am going to make eggplant parmesian and was thinking of using the allrecipes.com baked eggplant recipe instead of fried.

    Any suggestions on a good spaghetti sauce recipe, not to hot or spicy as we are tender in the tummy in our house.

    A better eggplant parmesian recipe would be welcome too if you have any ideas.

    Thanks again for all your help people, I really appreciate it.

    mind posting a link?

    my personal favourite is this

    2 table spoons garlic ginger paste
    2 diced onion
    2 small dice celery
    1 finely grated carrot
    canned (Whole or crushed)tomatoes 16 oz
    1 can tomato paste
    1/2 cup of sake mixed 1 table spoon sugar
    1 table spoon soy sauce
    a squirt ketchup
    2 cup frozen tofu ham in cubes
    1 tsp hot pepper paste ( brand: Wang) ( wont make this dish spicy since its just a tiny bit)
    1 fresh lemon
    2 table spoons dried oregano
    2 table spoon dried parsley
    1 table spoon basil


    method
    1) in a pot fry onion in medium for 5 minutes then add the celery and garlic ginger paste and cook for 3 more minutes
    2) add sake , cook till it evaporates
    3) add canned tomatoes and tomato paste ( if whole crush the tomatoes with a wooden spoon.
    4) add soy , oregano , parsley, basil , hot pepper sauce and grated carrots and ketchup
    5) let it simmer for 15 minutes then add tofu ham and cook for 5 more minutes
    6) squeeze the lemon juice into it.

    to make ginger garlic paste I just peel the garlic 3:2 ratio of garlic : ginger by weight. i roughly chop them up and throw it into a food processor and mince it up then I veggie oil into a small pot to top it up and cook for 2 minutes to temper it. store it in a container and add some more oil on top to cover it. can last in fridge for up to 2 weeks. This makes the oil infused with the garlic and ginger aswell.

    My go-to sauce recipe is simple. Saute onion, celery, carrot, and garlic. Add a can of crushed tomatoes and and another pureed tomatoes. Simmer, add oregano and a whole bunch of basil toward the end. Salt and pepper to taste.

    A little sugar in the sauce is a nice secret touch that I use.

    I do that too when I'm making a meat sauce. I use brown sugar.

    Do you use it because it cuts the acid in the sauce ? Because that is why I do ....
