Your prayers, and email suggestions, are answered! This sauce is fast, vegan, cheap, versatile (suggestions for applications below),and fresh and it uses canned tomatoes . My boss gave me some bay leaves from her yard. I'm going to jar this up and give it to her to say thanks - especially since she also brought me saffron from Sardinia...I'm in foodie heaven.
