Note*: Probably only available in Canada, for ingredients see below; Make sure it is Original because there are different varieties; If you don't have access to President's Choice products use another similar brand or improvise with 1 cup of chopped canned tomatoes; It's really just crushed tomatoes with a bit of salt; President's Choice Splendido Original Magic Italian Sauce Ingredients: Tomatoes, salt, natural flavour, citric acid. Melt butter over medium heat with olive oil. When butter is melted and starting to sizzle add minced garlic. Sautee garlic for about 1-2 minutes being careful not to let garlic turn brown or burn. Reduce heat. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Turn up heat until gently boiling. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 15 minute. Taste test. If not spicy enough add a little more chili pepper flakes and/or cayenne pepper to taste if you like it really spicy. Serve over favourite pasta cooked according to package directions. I recommend linguine.
