From "The North End Italian Cookbook". This is a light, delicate sauce, a little pink in color. Perfect for adding sliced black olives, clams, mushrooms or crab. Use your imagination. This is a slightly spicy sauce due to the red pepper flakes. Good over cooked thin spaghetti or linguini. This sauce can be frozen which makes it perfect for OAMC. ***NOTE*** This may be a classic Italian recipe, but we like it better with only 1/4 cup of oil and two 28 oz. cans of tomatoes, adding in a pound of cooked ground chuck served over penne. You won't taste the mint, but it does add something special.
