Mario Inspired Me

Mario has a new line of pasta sauces....I give this one two forks down. Very bland. I sometimes use a jarred sauce, in a pinch. I won't buy this one again.
This is my "go to" sauce in a pinch...and it is less expensive than many others. Even Cooks Illustrated gave it a good taste test.

So, I roasted some of my garden tomatoes...little salt and pepper and extra virgin olive oil. Roasted on 450 for about 20 minutes.

I had lot's of juices flowing out of them...threw it all in a pot with some fresh garden basil..and let it reduce. I later added some garden green beans...ground em up after they were tender. I also added one small can of organic tomato sauce and about 1 tsp of sugar..and more fresh basil when I finished it.

This passed the taste test around here! Eat your heart out Mario!

I saw Mario's sauce at Publix today - I am glad to hear to see what you thought about it.
