Ingredient of the Week - Emeril's Kicked Up Tomato Sauce
Idon't know that I ever would have picked this up at the market without a recommendation. But, my dad read about it in the NY Times, tried it, and told me it was awesome, so we gave it a shot. It has become our go-to tomato sauce for nights when we need something FAST. And I mean REALLY FAST, because making sauce myself with some fresh garlic and a can of crushed tomatoes is not terribly time-consuming.
Why do I like this sauce? It tastes fresh, not processed. It has a really nice kick to it - spicy enough to please me, but not too spicy for Dylie or Max. What DON'T I like? It has high fructose corn syrup, which sucks. That said, this is a pantry staple in our household, and I highly recommend it.
