There’s nothing fancy about my wardrobe ~ jeans, tee shirts, warm, comfy sweaters and this time of year, cute boots. But there are two things I am a total snob about. One is nachos (they must be loaded!), the other is pasta sauce which should always taste like the vine-ripened tomatoes, garlic and basil used in it were picked at just the right time from the nearest farm.

I’m already a fan of Prego Farmers’ Market® sauces. Awhile back I shared my 20 Minute Asparagus Tortellini Marinara recipe featuring Prego Farmers’ Market® sauce. Today, the heat is blasting inside and the wind is whipping outside so I’m going slow cooker, comfort food all the way with Beef Braciole (Italian Beef Rolls) ~ thin slices of sirloin filled with a delicious mix of seasoned breadcrumbs, two kinds of cheese, prosciutto and fresh herbs, rolled tightly then braised in Prego Farmers’ Market® Classic Marinara. The aroma alone will make your mouth water.

20 minute asparagus tortellini marinara

We had a bumper crop of tomatoes last year ~ I’m talking tomatogeddon, so store-bought sauce wasn’t on my radar. The tomato season here in the Midwest doesn’t last long though; usually 4-6 weeks at best, so we harvest, share, freeze, share and freeze some more until there’s no more room in the freezer. I chopped, roasted, sautéed and simmered my way to a freezer full of marinara (among other tomato dishes). But by early spring the only sign left of tomatogeddon and my homemade marinara was the faint aroma of garlic that refused to leave my fingertips. Actually, I kind of like that aroma, but that’s for another post. I used to make 20 Minute Asparagus Tortellini Marinara during ‘tomato season’, but a homemade marinara turned this 20 minute dish into 60. I was intrigued by the NEW Prego® Farmers’ Market sauces now available in Walmart stores. When I read the label ~ the same farm-fresh ingredients picked at just the right time that I use in my own homemade garden-fresh marinara ~ I jumped.
