Red Gold canned tomatRed Gold Tomatoesoes recently found their way to my family’s dinner table, and I must say that I have enjoyed cooking with these 100 percent natural tomato products. Red Gold began as a family business in 1942,  and four generations later, the Reichart family is still very much involved in the business.

Red Gold makes six varieties of spaghetti sauce, 19 different varieties of canned tomatoes, tomato juice, salsa, ketchup and sauces, all of which are MSG free. The tomato products are 100 percent natural, and the products contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

With the canned tomatoes from Red Gold, it is easy to put together a hearty, healthy and flavorful meal in no time. From chicken with tomatoes, to beef stew, pizzas and spaghetti bolognese, the Red Gold tomatoes are a perfect addition to the dinner table

My family’s favorite Red Gold dish is tomato sauce with sirloin beef and veggies, a simple easy dish that turns a small sirloin steak into a meal for the entire family. This meal is the perfect way for me to stretch a small piece of high quality meat in a way that meets everyone’s taste requirements. My husband loves his Red Gold Sirloin Steak Sauce on his mashed potatoes, my sons love it on their spaghetti, and I like the plain Red Gold Tomato Sauce on my vegetarian spaghetti dish or on veggie pizzas with roasted peppers and veggies.


You can basically use any leftover veggies you have in the fridge, just follow the same steps to get a healthy and hearthy meal for your family.
