No Tomato Pasta Sauce

Rated as 4.51 out of 5 Stars

"My husband can't eat tomatoes so I came up with this so we could have Italian once in a while! Serve over cooked pasta or use instead of canned tomatoes or sauce in any recipe - just change the spices! I now use this as a base for chili, goulash and pizza too!"
