I loved this, will make it again, added lots of parmesan and a little mozzarella to it as well because i love mozzarella with tomatoes..

I liked this - the black olives kind of freaked my hubby out a little bit... not my usual tomato sauce. I liked the heat from the red peppers, too... nice change of pace, quick and easy! I used 1 teaspoon each of dried basil & oregano as I didn't have any fresh on hand. Thanks for posting! Made for Photo Tag.
