      RECIPE TITLE "Tomato-Basil Sauce Recipe"

    This flavorful, yet basic, sauce embodies the simple, rustic elegance of classic Italian cooking at its best. It is used in a wide range of Italian dishes, including soups, pastas, baked dishes, risotto and, of course, pizzas, to which it adds a deeper, more fully developed flavor than the uncooked tomato sauce at left. If you find that your tomatoes lack a good balance of sweetness and acidity, add a few pinches of sugar to bring out their natural sweetness.


    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    12 plum (Roma) tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped, or 1 can (28 oz) plum (Roma) tomatoes, chopped, with their juices
    8 large fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped
    Salt and freshly ground pepper

    Mozambique Spice Company 2-pc. Mild Sauce and Rub, Mixed
    Mozambique Spice Company 2-pc. Mild Sauce and Rub, Mixed Peri-Peri is a unique blend of spices, sea salts, garlic, Birds Eye Pepper, light brown sugar and parsley flakes. It has a hint of citrus, and includes smoked African paprika from the coastal areas of Mozambique. Use this spice on grilled prawns, chicken or pork for unbeatable flavor! The Peri-Peri rub also tastes great on broiled, roasted or grilled fish, vegetables, mushrooms and grilled fruit, such as pineapple. Includes: Mild Peri-Peri Sauce and Mild Peri-Peri Rub

    In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the garlic and sauté for a few seconds just until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to break down and form a sauce, about 10 minutes.

    Add the basil, season to taste with salt and pepper and raise the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and is no longer watery, 15-20 minutes.

    Use immediately, or transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

    Serving Size = 2 tablespoons
