Never did so little produce so much intense flavor! Easy on the butter, though, you may find this too rich!
I will admit, my husband doesn't care for this sauce - a little too heavy, he says. But for me, the richer the better!
I use this when a recipe calls for a small amount of tomato sauce, with Italian seasoning on meatball sandwiches, wherever it seems to fit.
