This past week, I was ask to try Rose Romano’s Italian Gourmet Toppings, more specifically the Italian Pepper Marinara Sauce. I was anxious to try this because my family loves Italian foods, so I knew we would be able to easily come up with something to use it on.
Later on during a grocery trip, I found some gluten free cheese ravioli and knowing that I was going to have this marinara sauce to try, I decided to pick up a bag. One thing I learned while using the sauce is that Italians traditionally do not smother their foods with sauce they use it simply to enhance the flavor. This came as a shock to me since typically at nationally known Italian food chains the pasta is covered with sauce.
When I first used the sauce, I thought that it seemed more thick and would not cover my pasta, then I realized it was because it was simply made to enhance it not coat it. We decided to use the Italian Peppers Marinara with Green Bell Peppers, and I can tell you it was delicious!
The taste was very fresh and light not at all what you would expect with a jar of pasta sauce. I actually enjoyed the fact that it was a thicker sauce and not runny like most of the jarred pasta sauces I have used in the past.
We mixed our sauce with a pound of ground beef to make it a meat sauce to top over our ravioli, it was the perfect combination of flavors and turned into a wonderful dinner!
- 1 Bag of Prepared Frozen Cheese Ravioli or Gluten Free Ravioli.
- 1 lb Ground Beef Cooked and Drained
- 1 16 oz Jar of Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara with Green Bell Peppers
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Prepare the ravioli as instructed on the package and set aside.
- Once the ground beef is cooked and drained return to the pan and pour in the sauce. Let this simmer for 5 minutes until heated through.
- Prepare your ravioli topped with meat sauce and garnish with cheese!
