    Sauce Simmered Squirrel Over Pasta

    Went out to the woods behind the house this evening with a Henry Model H001 .22LR to try for a squirrel for dinner. 20 minutes later a squirrel gave me a nice shot. Shot was clean. Picked him up and processed him quick. Meat came out spotless. Boiled up some rigatoni and opened a jar of pasta sauce. Jazzed up the sauce some with a garden pepper and onion, some dried oregano from last years garden and some garlic. Slow simmered the squirrel legs, straps, flanks and ribs for 45 minutes in the sauce. Dumped it all over the pasta, little bit of salt and pepper and some garden basil, sliced off a chunk of fresh bread and chowed. Had a beer with the meal to tie it all together. Meat came out nice and tender. Fell right off the bones.

    "locally sourced"
    "100% organic"
    "low fat"
    "Humanely harvested" [assuming you're a good shot]

    Sounds like hippie food but looks great!
