Sauce That Goes With Everything

Total Time

(or just about!) This is a simple sauce I created that we've used for many things, and it's especially handy if you don't want to make a side of veggies- makes meals heartier. We love it on pork chops, chicken, and pasta. You could even put it in a roll for a sandwich- because it's thick/chunky. Hope you like!

This is a delicious sauce that is so versatile. I made double the recipe and used half as a sauce for sauteed chicken breasts. I omitted capers from the other half and added it to homemade spaghetti sauce. The artichokes and roasted peppers added a great flavor to the spaghetti sauce. As you said, it has many uses and I'm adding it to my permanent recipe file. Thanks for posting this, Mrs. MM!

This is very good, MrsMM. Very Mediterranean flavors, and it's pretty low in fat! I especially like that you were generous with the capers -- I had this on chicken and will try it next on pork. Thanks for an easy, flavorful recipe!
