What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

After years of debate, it’s now believed that pasta is from Italy, but the tomato found its way to Italy via Mexico. “It’s hard to be­ lieve that pasta and tomatoes weren’t originally served together,” admits Alice Harding, consulting home economist to Del Monte Foods. “After all, tomatoes are a natural with pasta.\ Here and in Italy, tomatoes star in our favorite pasta sauces, like tomatoes with basil and garlic or tomato meat sauce. “Tomatoes make a versatile base as a pasta sauce, so we’ve created DEL MONTE FreshCut Diced Tomatoes that are seasoned with garlic, on­ ions, herbs, and/or green peppers to give consumers a jump start on dinner,” explains Harding. Too, tomatoes are tasty with almost any meat or vegetable - so recipe possi­ bilities are endless. For a fast, robust sauce, sau­ sage is a great addition to toma­ toes. Sausage cooks quickly, espe­ cially when crumbled, and it adds lots of flavor without the need for many ingredients. For example, “Zesty Pasta Romano” calls for Ital­ ian sausage, seasoned diced toma­ toes, green onions, pasta, and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese - nothing more. The recipe for “Chunky Tomato Pasta Bake is equally simple and delicious, with ground beef, toma­ toes, mushroom soup, and mozza­ rella cheese. Diced seasoned tomatoes are a natural for pasta - and for quick cooking.
