I have received free products in exchange for this post
Tuttorosso Tomatoes, the cherished 85-year-old tomato brand that’s family owned and family run, recently launched a new website with recipes, an inspirational ideas blog and even stories from home cooks. As part of that, they are introducing a line-up of Sunday Sauce recipes to inspire cooks in every kitchen. They’re calling it, “Celebrate the Sauce.”
Preparing family meals is more than putting food on the table; it’s a craft that is rooted in tradition, family and love.
I received the following items for free:
- 1 28-oz can crushed with basil
- 1 28-oz. can peeled plum Italian style
- 1 28-oz can of sauce and a 6-oz can of tomato paste,
- plus a Tuttorosso apron and Tuttorosso wooden spoon
We like to make big pots of sauce on days off and then use it throughout the week in various dishes. Christmas week I knew was going to be really crazy with last minute shopping and visiting family, so the Monday morning I got to work making a pot of sauce using the items that Tuttorosso had sent me for free.
I had never used peeled plum tomatoes before in a sauce, but after I read the included recipe card, I realized you could easily break the tomatoes apart. I didn’t break them up too much, I wanted to make a chunky sauce. I also added two cans of tomato paste, lots of garlic and other italian seasonings.
It smelled really good! When Tony called to say he would be home in about 15 minutes, I threw on some beef ravioli. Dinner was delicious. We also used the sauce over perogies for lunch the next day, and spaghetti for dinner the night after Christmas!
