Italian Parsley

Flat-Leaf Parsley

The best flavor comes from the Italian flat-leaf parsley. Look for the greenest leaves and no brown or yellowing leaves. Must be used within a week for the best flavor. Keep refrigerated and store in a Debbie Meyer Green Bag to keep fresh between uses.



Choose shallots that are firm with shiny tissue paper skinned exteriors.

Garlic Braid


Firm bulbs of garlic with large segments are the best.



For the Rich Red Pasta Sauce, try large green or black kalamata olives.

Extra Virgin Olive Oils
The Olive Oil, Garlic, and Shallot

Measure the extra virgin olive oil into a large heavy bottomed saucepan and add the minced garlic and finely diced shallot.

Saute for about two minutes to cook the garlic and cause the shallot to soften.

The Dried Herbs

Add the dried oregano, fennel seeds and black pepper and give the pot a little stir.
Dried Fennel Seeds

The Tomatoes, Capers, Tomato Paste, and Wine

Add the Muir Glen Fire Roasted Whole Tomatoes and break them into small bits with your fingers.

Add the tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, and merlot wine; stir till evenly distributed.

Turn the heat down to a simmer and let cook uncovered for at least a half hour.

The Field Roast Italian Sausage

If you forgot to defrost the Field Roast Italian Sausage, just put two links, with the plastic still on them, into a bowl of hot water and let set for five minutes.

Remove the plastic and crumble the links by hand so that no large chunks are left.

Add two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to a heavy skillet and over high heat brown crumbs slightly... do not over cook and don't leave the skillet.

Remove from the heat and add to the tomatoes.

The Olives

Slice the olives and add to the simmering sauce.


The Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley and Fresh Basil

Just before serving, add the parsley and basil to the simmering sauce and stir to distribute evenly.
