Cooking Instructions
  • 1 lb fresh tomatoes

    1 can tomato sauce
    1 Tbs olive oil

    2 medium red pepper, seeded

    5 cloves fresh garlic

    1/3 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt

    1/3 cup parmesan cheese

    4 tablespoons JTA’s Chef Blend Hot Sauce

    1 Tsp fresh lemon juice

    1/3 cup red wine

    1 lb angel hair pasta

    1 teaspoon onion powder

    1 Tbs dried parsley

  • On a large sheet tray add your fresh tomatoes, red peppers cut in half and 4 cloves of garlic. Add 1 Tbs of oil to vegetables and combine to fully coat. Roast in a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes or until caramelized.

    Remove vegetables from oven and set aside roasted garlic. Drain flavored oil from the sheet tray and reserve in a small dish. In a blender, add roasted tomatoes and peppers, tomato sauce, 1 clove of garlic, lemon juice, hot sauce and onion powder. Blend ingredients. During the blending process slowly drizzle in the reserved olive oil. Continue blending until smooth.

    Pour sauce into a large stock-pot and bring to a simmer. Add red wine and stir. Next, add yogurt and parmesan cheese and stir to bring sauce to a creamy texture.

    Cut roasted garlic into thin slices and add to sauce along with mushrooms and dried parsley. Cook sauce for about 15 minutes.

    In a large stock-pot add water and bring to boil. Drop in pasta and cook for about 10 minutes or until Al dente.

    Add your cooked and drained pasta to the sauce and fully combine. Garnish with dried parsley.
