Instant Pot Fresh Tomato Sauce

One of my favorite things to make is homemade tomato sauce. I love using fresh ingredients and creating a delicious, flavorful sauce. This Instant Pot Fresh Tomato Sauce is so easy to throw together and it tastes amazing! So much better than marinara sauce from a bottle. Plus, when we use the Instant Pot, this sauce is ready in 10 minutes! There is no reason not to make it at home! Make it with me!

The secret to this Instant Pot Fresh Tomato Sauce is a couple of ingredients; roasted garlic, fresh basil leaves, and parmesan cheese. First, the roasted garlic! Roasting garlic is a great way to add a new flavor element to this sauce. It is not necessary, but it sure makes this recipe even more delicious. Simply wrap the garlic cloves in tin foil and bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes, or until the garlic is soft. When it is finished roasting, the peels will slide right off and the garlic is ready to use.

Fresh Basil! Using fresh basil in this sauce really brightens it up! You can substitute the fresh basil leaves for dried, but it wont give you that same flavor. If possible, fresh is best!

Parmesan Cheese! We are talking all about flavor today and adding parmesan cheese right there into the sauce brings another element of flavor to this dish! You can do one of two things, throw your leftover rind into the sauce and fish it out after it cooks or add a cup of shredded parmesan right there to the pot.

Add the olive oil, garlic, onion, mushrooms, and peppers. Saute for 2-3 minutes, until onions and veggies start to wilt. Stir in the fresh parsley, Italian seasoning, and salt. 

Next, add in the basil leaves, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and parmesan cheese.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
