Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


I recently bought a jar, but different brand. The only ingredient is tomatoes. A little research

made me wonder if that is what some Italian recipes mean when they call for tomato sauce. I don't particularly like the overly salty, sometimes herby taste of the small cans of what is labeled tomato sauce. I have some of Nick Stellino's cookbooks and so many of his recipes call for a small amount of tomato sauce used with chicken stock, etc. I'm thinking the passata might be a good stand in for it when I don't want to take the time to make it.

Please keep posting about your new finds, I also bought a can of cherry tomatoes after you posted about them, the ones I bought are red. Now must find a recipe in which to use them as well as the Passata.
