  • Cook's Note:
  • Servings really depend on what you are using the sauce for. On pasta I find that it gives me 3 well-sauced pasta bowls. When I use this as a pasta sauce I also toss in bits of asparagus, artichokes and tomatoes. Dairy Eaters - Add 1/8 cup Parmesan cheese. Meat Eaters - This goes really well served with flank steak.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
