    Cookin-jo's Note:

    I came up with this easy time-saver when I was trying to expand my picky son's palatte, and he still loves it. I've also served it to my non meat eating niece, who kept picking out the red peppers and she loved it as well.

      Nice simple sauce and fresh, I used a good quality Italian diced tomatoes and definitely fresh basil. Fresh flavors. I made the sauce ahead because I'm working today and I took it for the guys and I at lunch. A nice side salad, but we only have 1 burner, so I am doing the cheese tortellini down there, but the sauce is done. (minus the fresh basil of course), but I had to taste the sauce and I really liked it. My only change, just a little salt and pepper and I used Pecorino Romano (which will not affect the recipe whatsoever), it just happen to be what I had on hand. My cheese tortellini was just a fresh one from my local grocery store. I think mine was a 3 cheese, but any cheese would work great with this. I will definitely make this sauce again.

      This is a real winner! The sauce is just perfect - a little sweet, a little spicy. The sauce would be good on anything - other pasta, chicken, crackers. Will definitely make again! Thanks!
