Red Sauce and Popcorn

Tried out two Season Two recipes last night. First up was the Pantry Friendly Tomato Sauce. To me, this sauce was fantastic. Gemma doesn’t really care for the “roasted tomato” flavor in anything, so next time I want to try this without the broiling step – perhaps doing the whole sauce in a big skillet. Regardless, though, a really great red sauce that is easy to make.

Later on I went to B.J.’s place to watch a movie and brought with me the stuff for Plain Brown Popper. I just dressed it up with a little garlic salt and melted butter, and it was a great snack. This “recipe” is more like a method, though, which is why I rate it 0, or N/A. There’s a ton of ways to dress up and customize popcorn, and next I’ll probably try putting some clarified butter and tumeric on it.

  • Ease: 3/5
  • Used a stick blender to make give it a consistency of a thicker jarred sauce, rather than leaving a lot of chunks.
  • Would like to try this without broiling the tomatoes.
