green bell pepper, chopped
chopped fresh cilantro
chopped white onion
1 (15 ounce) can

1 (6 ounce) can
black olives, drained and sliced
This was superb tasting, easy, quick, and made a beautiful presentation. I felt like a professional chef putting it out on the table. I added some sliced fresh baby bella mushrooms and replaced the fresh plum tomatoes with a 28 oz can of seasoned diced tomatoes (maybe 3/4 of the can). Fantastic!
This recipe has had really good reviews, but it has no seasonings at all, not even a little salt. I prepared it exactly as the recipe was written, tasted it after simmering for 10 minutes, and it just tasted like the canned tomato sauce. To salvage our dinner, I then added a link of italian sausage, a little basil, oregano, salt & pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Sorry, I won't be making this again.
WOW!!!! I agree, this is the best and fastest tomato sauce I have ever made or eaten in any restaraunt!! I changed just a couple of things, calamta olives instead of regular black olives, and I added 1 large Italian Sausage, browned and crumbled. Crazy Good. Thanks for the recipe, it is now my family's #1 recipe.
I did my own little variation to this sauce, I didn't have tomatoes or tomatoe sauce, so I used picante sauce. :/ It still turned out really good. I will definately make this again when I don't have any store bought pasta sauce.
Not a bad sauce overall, I like the olive oil, sauce, cheese, and the other ingredients. It lacks seasoning, which you will likely need to add. I used a garlic infused olive oil and a garlic and onion seasoning. I left out the black olives and peppers since we were out.
Tastes great when adding capers and sundried tomatoes, no need for salt!
This is the best pasta sauce recipe I have ever made, or eaten! It is unbeatable!
Wonderful, tasty, fast. I added 12 oz of ground beef to punch up the protein, a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes (no fresh ones) and 8 oz of tomato sauce. Needed a little salt to make it perfect.
