Love, Love, Love the sneaky chef additions to this. I usually do some kind of veggies additions but have never used the white puree - not sure why. This was a tasty sauce. The only change I made was to finely chop some kale and add to it. Oh and a pound of turkey burger when served with angel hair pasta.
