Recipe for basic tomato sauce.
The approximate value of this box is $65.00. That's a very approximate value because some of the prices I had to convert from Euro and some of the items were very hard to find. I am on salt overload right now. This is the second large bag of salt I received in a subscription box. Not to mention the little jars. I also have salt blocks that when they break down you can grind into salt flakes. I love a good cookbook and I'm hoping this one is filled with more fresh Italian food than pasta type Italian food. From the picture it looks like it. I'm also a big fan of vinegar so I'll be using this little sauv blanc bottle for sure. Capers aren't my favorite thing to eat but I like them as a garnish. I probably won't use the red pepper flakes. I have a big jar already and I'm not a spicy food person so a little goes a long with me.
Verdict: This box has great Italian theme. I can't wait to make the tomato sauce.
