I started making this when someone gave me a jar of roasted red pepper sauce from a gourmet deli, now I create my own. The flavor combination cannot be beat! If you regularly have containers of homemade marinara in your freezer then you'll love this. Great with a green salad and garlic vinaigrette like my Garlic Vinaigrette. Serve a big, bold red wine with this and you can't go wrong!
