A Blogging Friend of mine, Jo-Lynne (Musings of a Housewife) and I share a similar food philosophy: real food ingredients, no artificial preservatives, no articificial colors etc. (gluten-free as well for her).

She wrote me a few weeks telling me all about this superior, high quality marinara sauce company Rose Romano’s and asked if I wanted to try their Italian green pepper and red pepper sauces. Um, silly question right?

The sauces arrived in a gorgeous set of 4 boxed set and I quickly flipped over a jar of their marinara with green peppers sauce to read the ingredients list: Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Fresh Bell Peppers, Fresh Onions, Brown Sugar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fresh Basil, Fresh Garlic, Sea Salt, Fruit Juice for Color, Citric Acid, Spices.

I set to work thinking of what recipes I wanted to make first and after chowing on a homemade pizza, I decided to get a bit more creative. I hope you don’t mind….

What I love most and why I think they are worth every dang penny is because the sauces can elevate a simple meal. It makes it special and takes it up a notch – you know what I mean?

Plus, there is none of the junk you worry about and a huge time saver. Imagine running in the house to make dinner and all you need to do top a piece of steak or boring ole chicken with one of these toppings. Priceless!

Disclosure: I was sent some sauce and don’t want to share it….except in this post. Ciao!

I too, love the simple ingredients and I adore the potato combo you put together. I would have NEVER thought of that. Which might be why you do what you do so well!
