Tuttorosso Tomatoes

Tuttorosso Tomatoes recently launched a new website  with recipes, an inspirational ideas blog and even stories from home cooks. As part of that, they are introducing a line-up of Sunday Sauce recipes in a series called  Celebrate the Sauce. I don’t know about you but, at our house, we definitely #CelebrateTheSauce often! 

I’ve got plenty of Italian in my blood – it takes over when I’m mad (kidding – maybe) and when I’m in the kitchen. I don’t want to brag but I can make a lasagna like no other! Haha! I usually cook up a big sauce like the perfect marinara above or, more often a nice meat sauce on Sundays. I prepare the sauce, put it in my crockpot and simmer all day. Because I’m restricting carbs (96 lbs lost in 8 months and counting!) I prefer making my sauce from scratch so I know exactly what goes in it! I serve my sauce on zoodles (zucchini noodles) or spaghetti squash and cook up regular pasta for everyone else. The next night we usually mix the sauce with macaroni or I make lasagna (for a low carb lasagna I have tried cooked cabbage leaves in the past, next time I think I’ll do thinly sliced zucchini). 

 The Tuttorosso brand is owned by Red Gold, which is third generation family-owned and family-run. I love the #SundaySauce #TutturossoRecipes ideas!
