There are a number of ways for family and friends to show their love towards Family Heritage Month. In fact, what better way is there than sharing a nice meal together.
Add Something Special To Your Family Recipes
Bringing everyone together to celebrate this month dedicated to family heritage is ideal. One way of doing that is with a nice meal using family recipes. Not only is it a chance to share past recipes but it is also a chance to show new ones that have been created. Now, depending on what you make you may need some sauces. Why not consider the sauces that Cucina Antica has to offer?
Cucina Antica’s cooking sauces aren’t just your average sauces, they have a story behind them. There are two in particular that you may be interested in trying out of their variety.
- Tomato Basil Sauce – is what Chef Neil calls the “new marinara”. It’s simple yet light flavor makes it the new kid on the block. Unlike most marinara sauces, this Tomato Basil has no garlic, only onions, yet it has the robust body of any marinara while maintaining its subtle and light lingering flavor. This is the best sauce for vegetables, chicken, veal or eggplant parmigiana. If you are not a fan of garlic, use this sauce for making lasagna.
- Tuscany Pumpkin Pasta Sauce – is inspired by Italy’s rustic harvest. Chef Neil Fusco his artisanal blend of peak harvested pumpkin, flavorful San Marzano tomatoes, and an aromatic combination of garlic, rosemary, and sage. With a delicate hint of honey and cinnamon, this soul-warming sauce achieves a well-balanced earthy character robust enough to be tossed with cheese ravioli, and yet light enough to drizzle over a sautéed medley of fresh vegetables. The possibilities are endless with a sauce as savory and versatile as this.
Trying something new may give you a few ideas, and you may even find a couple of favorites. With the right sauce, a recipe can turn into a true family masterpiece.
