No. 2 : Kitchen Scoop
We are using Italian seasoning in this easy pasta sauce for both convenience and flavor. Italian seasoning is most often made from a blend of dried basil, mar- joram, parsley, thyme and oregano – all Mediterranean herbs that bring lots of taste to the table. Dried herbs are a very concentrated source of both fla- vor and nutrition – among the most nutritious greens you can find. They are very rich in a widerange of disease-fighting phyto- chemicals. Almost all green herbs have potent anti-flammatory properties!
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Make a BIG batch of tomato sauce – triple or quadruple the recipe. To freeze, place the sauce in gallon ziplock bags and place flat on a sheet tray. When frozen, stack the bags vertically in the freezer. They will be super easy to pull out for a quick dinner.

Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre
This wine is made using a creative take on the ‘ripasso’ technique, a method that is celebrated in the Veneto area of Italy. Most of the grapes are vinified at harvest time; while the rest are set aside to partially dry. In January, the wine is blended with the juice from the dried grapes and undergoes a second fermentation. Made with a traditional blend of Corvina and Rondinella grapes and a small amount of the Sangiovese grape, its easy to enjoy wine with almost any red-sauced dish.
