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.
