Celebrate the Sauce with Tuttorosso {Giveaway}

Tuesday, December 2, 2014
One of the things I love most about the holidays is gathering with family and friends around the table to enjoy a hearty and delicious meal. In our family, my husband is known for his meatballs and tomato sauce. It's his specialty, and when he cooks this family-favorite, he pours his heart in to it.

He makes a complete mess in the kitchen, but because it's such a labor of love, I could never get upset about the mess.

Many of these celebrations start with Tuttorosso tomatoes, the Hubs' tomato of choice. We've relied on Tuttorosso time and time again to help make an ordinary meal an extraordinary one.

Tuttorosso recently launched a new website (www.tuttorossotomatoes.com) with recipes, an inspirational ideas blog and even stories from home cooks. As part of that blog launch, Tuttorosso is introducing "Celebrate the Sauce", a line-up of Sunday Sauce recipes.
