    Background

    I use this recipe time and time again to season all types of Italian food, for example tomato sauce, fresh tomato bruschetta, etc.  It makes a great basting sauce for fresh fish or vegetables (eggplants, asparagus, brussel sprouts, zucchini etc) prior to grilling or baking.  You also need it to make Papa Vince pasta with broccoli recipe.
