Yeah, that's right. It is a tomato sauce without tomatoes. And it tastes amazing! Since I am allergic to tomatoes, I cannot have spaghetti, enchiladas, pizza, tomato soup, chicken parmesan.... The list goes on and on. Now with this notomato sauce, I can enjoy all the things I have been denied for so long. I am not promising you that this sauce will taste exactly like tomatoes (I don't know if it does or not. What do tomatoes taste like? I don't remember.), but it sure is good. I would eat the sauce plain if I did not want to save it for the recipes.
To make this sauce into pizza or marinara sauce, just mix 1 tsp of Italian seasoning per cup into it. It's great for dipping mozzarella cheese sticks into. (Not to say that these mozzarella sticks are not great on their own.)
Baked Mozzarella Sticksmakes 8
4 sticks of mozzarella string cheese
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp flour
2 tbsp bread crumbs
½ tsp Italian seasonings
Cut the cheese sticks in half and freeze. Place 1 tablespoon of flour into a small dish. Mix the egg and water in another dish, and the bread crumbs and seasonings in a third. Coat each cheese stick in flour, dip them into the egg mixture, and then roll them in the bread crumbs. Arrange the mozzarella sticks on a nonstick baking stone. Bake for 10-12 minutes in an oven preheated to 400 degrees, turning them halfway into the cooking time. Serve with notomato marinara sauce (above).
