At least one night a week we make sure to have a quick and easy meal planned; most often this takes the form of whole wheat pasta with jarred pasta sauce. When it’s just the two of us eating, we usually heat about half the jar of sauce. I usually try to find some creative use for the other half, before it goes bad. Sometimes I heat it as a side to breadsticks or pizza puffs; other times it becomes the base for our next pizza.
This week, after receiving these three jars compliments of Summit 6, and immediately putting it to use for a quick weeknight pasta dinner, I decided I also wanted to use their sauce for something a bit more creative: Stromboli!
Stromboli is so much fun to eat! It’s for people like me, who love pizza crust and can never get enough crispy dough! It requires all the same ingredients to make a pizza, but half the dough is folded over to form a rectangle that can easily be sliced, served and enjoyed!
For this recipe, I rolled out pizza dough into a rectangle. On half the dough, I spread a layer of the Spicy Summit 6 Sauce, then topped it with fresh mozzarella, olives, artichokes and dried oregano. Then, fold over remaining dough, and make about 3-4 slits in top of dough. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 15-18 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
We used the Spicy flavor for the stromboli which had just a slight amount of spice but was not overwhelming. There were small pieces of vegetables, including eggplant, throughout the sauce.
Summit 6 Pasta Sauce is manufactured by Joslin Foods in Massachusetts. The sauce is cholesterol free and low in fat and sodium, and the dish below is gluten free and low-carb. It comes in three flavors: Spicy, Kids Pasta Sauce and Classic.
