Tunisia is closer to Italy than one might think, and tomato- based sauces are a traditional Tunisian accompaniment to couscous. This version uses the ingredients of the Testour region, which include tomatoes, artichokes, and pickled lemon. The resulting sauce is just as fitting over pasta as it is over couscous. As with all of the Mahjoub products, this is produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes. This product is organic.
