A few weeks ago I was approached by the Tuttorosso Tomato company, who are running a promotion to celebrate their new website. Their “Celebrate the Sauce” promotion runs through December 23rd. You can find their latest sauce recipes and win lots of different prizes- check them out at http://www.facebook.com/tuttorossotomato.
They sent me a great kit (see below) of their products along with their recipes, a great wooden spoon and apron- all in a 4 section bag (that ‘s perfect for carrying a few bottles of wine). AND best of all, they’ve given me one to give away to one of you! To enter, just leave a comment telling me what you’ll make with a Tuttorosso Tomato kit. I’ll announce the winner next Tuesday!
Update 12/23: The winner is Kristi Curley.
So what did I make with my kit? Tomato Basil Soup. It a classic combination of tomatoes, chicken broth, heavy cream and herbs…. and always a hit. I served it at my cookie swap last weekend with some thick slices of toasted French bread and a side salad. The Tuttorosso crushed tomatoes really gave the soup a fresh taste! Remember to be careful when blending the soup. DO allow it to cool a while, first. (Trust me on this one- you REALLY don’t want a tomato explosion in your kitchen).
