An Old Don and a New Favorite

Don Pepino is a sauce I’ve been using for years. I add a little olive oil to the saucepan and sauté minced or sliced garlic, then the sauce, and then let it simmer slowly (covered) adding some fresh chopped basil leaves near the end. At times I’ll add red wine or mushrooms, or a can of crushed tomatoes. It’s a good base that you can “jazz-up” to your liking. I like its fresh taste. It’s not over spiced like some of those sauces you buy in a jar. They also make a good pizza sauce which is probably what a lot of pizzerias use as the warehouse stores sell huge cans of it. You can get a small one in the grocery store. It's what I use for my homemade pizza. (For tips on making homemade pizza see 4/15/05 post.)

The little garlic slicer/shredder was purchased in Walmart for $3 and change. It works great! You could also use it for radishes, baby zucchini, and such.
