She talked about using the fresh herbs you like.  One herb she used was amaranth, which she got from Pam at the Prairie Hollow Farm booth (because if you're looking for something out of the ordinary - see Pam!).

The tomato sauce includes tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper. It can be served either chunky (as shown) or smooth.
