Sometimes you find yourself in a pickle.
You’re making pasta, but you have no pasta sauce.
You don’t feel like cooking dinner but your significant other calls telling you he’s bringing dinner guests. Or you forget you’re having company over because of those long nights at work.
You don’t want a jar because of everything that’s in a jar and well there’s people coming over. You want to make something wholesome.

No sugar, whatsoever. Why? Because we didn’t add any. This is what happens when you make food using pure ingredients!
This is too easy to make.
The taste is pretty amazing. The garlic, the red pepper, compliments the tomatoes. The herbs creates a flavor profile that screams Italy.
It’s great for pastas, as a dip for tortellini, cheese sticks, or ravioli, pizza sauce.
What’s great is you can make this in large batches and jar it for later. That way you will always have some on hand if you need a dip for an appetizer when company comes over unexpectedly. Or for those late night munchies after the bar when friends are over to keep the party going.
