Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Note from the Kraft Kitchens
This version of cacciatore is based on a classic recipe using tomato paste, so the flavor of the sauce is more strongly tomato and less like a pasta sauce. If you prefer a spicier sauce, increase the basil, oregano and pepper – and be sure they are within their shelf life so that you are getting their full flavor. Substituting dry white wine for the broth enhances the sauce flavor nicely, too.
