Create a dinner featuring the seasonings of classic Creole cooking: onion, bell pepper, and celery. The sauce is perfect for pasta, but we love it on rice. Stir in cooked shrimp and smoked sausage, and you've got jambalaya.
Makes 4 to 6 servings
Sauté first 3 ingredients in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes; stir in garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in tomato sauce and next 2 ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Serve immediately over hot cooked pasta or rice.
