Well folks, I’ve stumbled upon it… and I knew it at first bite!

“It” being the proclaimed “my favorite recipe of the month” 🙂

There, I said it.  And I’m not kidding.  Please and thank you Food & Wine magazine for the recipe idea, sure am glad I’ve got that subscription renewed thank you sisterrrr 😉

I’m not sure if it was the superb quality of this Pomi Pomodoro E Basilico, or the recipe itself, or a combination of the two. But either way, I was hooked!

Disclaimer:  I received this product sample for free.

So if you have 30 to 40 minutes to spare and a desire for something deliciously different for dinner, please make this.  Trust me, you won’t be sorry 😉

Grass fed ground beef, onion and garlic. 

Red pepper flakes, sea salt, black pepper.

Pomi tomato basil sauce, sliced black olives.

Cauliflower.  Frozen/microwaved if ya like (hey, I went there 😉 )

Tomato basil ground beef black olive mixture.

Freshly grated Mozzarella cheese.

Melted & bubbly.

Topped with Panko bread crumbs.  And browned.

Then served.


Salty olives, creamy cheese, toasty bread crumbs made hearty with the ground beef yet light with the cauliflower. 

These flavors and textures all just WORKED.

And truth be told ya’ll, this Pomi sauce is seriously legit. I knew when I smelled it that it was going to be simplistically wonderful. And that it was.

Crushed tomatoes, tomato puree, salt, olive oil, tapioca starch, basil, sugar, natural flavour.  That’s it. 

The sauce had fresh tomato flavor with bursts of basil, like fresh just out of the garden basil… I would definitely place this in my “favorite store bought” sauce category.  If not my top favorite.  Oh soooo good!

Now hopefully I can find it in a store near me… 😉
