Tomatoes, Cooking and Inspiration

At home we are all big fans of Italian Cuisine. Particularly I love making it because it feels like a no brainer: I can please my family Regardless if it is chicken, beef, seafood, fish or just plain pasta. Personally, I love how many diverse thing I can come up with tomatoes.  Imagine my delight when I received Tuttorosso Tomatoes!

There is nothing like help in the kitchen. All sorts if help. I needed cooking instruction!  Do you know what tomatoes to use when? I didn't really but now thanks to suggestions and tips on the can labels of Tuttorosso Tomatoes I can now tell you when to used crushed, diced, whole, puree, plum, sauce, etc. For example, crushed tomatoes make a great base for pasta sauce, while paste can be used to thicken recipes

Besides this help, I found out of a Tuttorosso neat giveaway they are having. The 85-year-old tomato brand is hosting a Facebook promotion and is asking home cooks to post about their inspiration in cooking. Who (or what) inspired you to start cooking?
