My family and I truly are in love with Italian food-- I personally could probably eat Italian food everyday and would be the happiest person ever! I wish I was one of those cooks that had the patience and talent to make homemade red pasta sauce, but I'm not. I would much rather grab a can of all natural Tuttorosso Tomatoes and add my own spices to it and enjoy home cooked Italian dinner's that way!
I was sent a few cans of Tuttorosso's tomatoes: Diced Tomatoes, Crushed Tomatoes with Basil (No Salt Added), and Tomato Puree.
I am very impressed with the quality of these tomatoes. They're not too acid-icy or bland, but have a nice rich tomato flavor! I recently boiled up some spaghetti noodles and in a pot add the crushed tomatoes with basil, and added more spices like oregano, italian seasoning, garlic, salt and a little bit of sugar and it was just too good; I probably ate more pasta that night than I should have, and the sauce was of course the star of dinner!
My mother-in-law has given me this yummy Sausage Perlo recipe when my hubby and I first married almost 7 years ago and I can't wait to make it with the diced tomatoes I was sent!!! Yummo!
