pantry staple

This award winning ingredient has saved dinner time in our humble home (apartment) on more than one occasion over the past couple of weeks. This is the best product I have ever tasted from a can and makes the most delicious pinch-hit tomato sauce that I've ever tasted. Would you like a recipe? Well here you go.
