  • Notes:
  • use canned tomatoes, but ONLY San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes. 
  • Puree the tomatoes in a food processor or blender before you get started.
  • We use spaghetti, but you can use bucatini, angel hair, or fettuccini. 
  • Add a little crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce to give it a little kick
  • Make sure you reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water so you can add it back into the sauce. Don’t miss this step.
  • Add a little butter to the pasta at the end. You only need two tablespoons, but those two tablespoons make a big difference. The butter adds a richness to the pasta.
  • Don’t be skimpy with the fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
