Expert Tips

Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted crushed tomatoes can be used in place of crushed tomatoes with basil in this recipe.

Italian herb seasoning is readily available in the spice aisle of your grocery store. Or you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon each of dried basil, oregano and thyme in place of herb blend.
