I mentioned in this post I enjoyed a new reality show and was going to make a tomato sauce demonstrated on the program. I forgot I took pictures of the sauce for fun to compare to the tv show. The sauce was pretty good..I actually don't like star anise but I wanted to try somethign different. Instead of onions this recipe uses vanilla and anise for a base flavour. Stagg said it was okay but he thought it wa s a lot of work. I had to laugh because while we were cooking this sauce I made two other meals. I thought this sauce was really easy to make. We served the sauce over jullienne raw zucchini.
