I recently discovered gluten free marinara sauce that blends a savory tomato and bell pepper flavor to create a gourmet marinara sauce that tastes homemade. If you love homemade marinara sauce but don't have time to prepare it from scratch, then this sauce is for you. Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara taste like Grandma would make it and no one would ever guess it is from a jar. Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara Sauces are thick and the large red or green bell peppers in the sauce are plentiful.
Rose Romano's offers two delicious sauces: Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara with Red Bell Pepper and Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara with Green Bell Pepper. Each sauce is lovingly prepared with all natural ingredients and does not contain any synthetic preservatives. Both sauces are gluten free as well as free of the top eight allergens making this a terrific find for those with food allergies/sensitivities. As an added benefit, these sauces are only 5 calories per serving. Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara are a truly terrific culinary discovery!
In the past, I have always thought of marinara sauce in the traditional sense and served it with pasta. In an effort to branch out and expand my dinner menu, I tried cooking some different and more creative recipes with Rose Romano's marinara sauces. What did I discover when I used Rose Romano's sauces in new recipes? I discovered that Rose Romano's Italian Peppers Marinara Sauces are both delicious and versatile. These sauces made each meal wonderfully savory and full flavored. The distinct pepper flavor is full bodied enough that I didn't even need to add fresh bell peppers to any of my dishes.
Below are four autumn "tummy warming" meals that I prepared using Rose Romano's Marinara Sauces.
