Tuttorosso Tomatoes, yes, the 85-year-old tomato brand, is hosting a fun and easy Facebook promotion asking home cooks to post about their inspiration in cooking.  Who inspired you?

One of the main things about cooking is knowing what kind of products to use in which recipes.  For example, crushed tomatoes make a great base for pasta sauce, while paste can be used to thicken recipes.

Tuttorosso sent me three cans of tomatoes to sample–including the new No Salt Crushed.  I’m excited to try out some new recipes—and to test these yummy products!
