Additional Tips

Additional Tips

For more flavor, use sundried tomatoes in olive oil.
Reconstitute dry sundried tomatoes with hot water.
Don't drain bacon fat – it adds great flavor. Try turkey bacon and drain for a low calorie sauce.
If using cooked bacon, add after sautéing the onions and garlic.

Great with seafood, pork, chicken breast, leg and thigh. Also a wonderful pasta sauce, great with vegetables, or add eggs and make into a quiche.

As we struggle to recruit and retain millennials, we had our current millennial employees invite friends who don’t work for our organization to a Q&A session where we find out why our organization is or isn’t appealing to them, and what they are looking for in an employer. I recommend doing this off-site in a casual environment so you can get honest and open feedback that could be useful for better marketing.
