This is so flavorful with the fresh rosemary and lemon. I make this when my garden is growing so I have the fresh rosemary. You can substitute dried rosemary for the fresh, just use 3/4 tsp. I usually serve this with a rice pilaf and veggies.
In its very simplicity lie the secrets. This sauce is incredible. It has 3 ingredients, and no chopping. The amateurgourmet calls it Marcella Hazan's CRAZY tomato sauce. This is not your thick pasty sauce, it is a light luscious wonder. Add garlic or basil or mozzarella to it as you choose but try it this way first. The butter..DON'T switch to olive oil, it makes the sauce.
Believe it or not this is a recipe that I saw Paula Deen make on TV today. Just make sure you don't make the same mistake she did- the pumpkin seeds should be shelled (pepitas) before you sprinkle them as a garnish. This recipe is much easier to prepare than most mole recipes and is best served with tortillas and rice.
Wassail comes from the Anglo-Saxon toast "waes hael" or be whole". The first carols were Yuletide drinking songs and singers caroled their neighbourhoods carrying their wassail bowls with them. That was just to get you into the spirit, now down to business. I have no idea how many servings you'll get. When I make this I don't use any alcohol and I serve small amounts to younger children (diluted with apple juice) while the men bring big coffee mugs (with their own spirit base).
A side of garlic-roasted potatoes would be wonderful with this. If you don't have any pasta sauce, mix some tomato paste with a little hot water, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt, and you'll be good to go!
This is so easy and full of great flavor from the broccoli being roasted with garlic spiciness and smokiness from the chipotles and creaminess from the pine nuts. Keep in mind if you don't use seasoned salt and use regular salt you don't need so much.
