Forgot where I got this, but I serve on top of pasta and it's a nice change from your regular tomato sauce.

This was a flavor explosion! I loved the tip about using jarred roasted red peppers; a real time-saver. I used smoked paprika (probably available in the U.S. at imported food stores) and added a bit of chicken stock to the sauce to thin it, then served it over steamed baby spinach (right out of the bag). The colors were so beautiful together; it looked like the Italian or Mexican flag. This is also a great mid-winter Vitamin C boost to help keep those nasty viruses away. One can imagine umpteen other uses for this sauce.

I make something very similar to this, however I also add black olives, just a about 1/4 cup maybe. I have also added a little cream for a creamier pasta. Just about 1 cup of half and half with a couple tablespoons of cornstarch mixed in when cold, then cook it in a saucepan with a couple tablespoons of butter for about 10 minutes or so. Good stuff!
