  • Additional Information

    I never tell anyone that this sauce contains anchovies because they have such a bad reputation and people don't even want to hear what I have to say about them being in this sauce. So my advice is to let them eat this and when they tell you how good it is then you can tell them what they just ate! Good garlic bread and a salad finish it off just right.
