OK I admit it, I don’t love Italian food. I don’t even love pizza. I know, what a maroon. Part of what I don’t like is the sauce. So imagine my pleasure when I found this recipe for a light marinara.
I love an Alfredo sauce, which is probably even heavier, but sometimes there’s no understanding what’s up.
This sauce couldn’t be any easier.
1 28 ounce can San Marzano tomatoes
1 tablespoon or so of sugar (Norwegians like our tomatoes with the edge off. I always add some sugar to my tomatoes.)
Cook them together for a few minutes.
Add 1 tablespoon butter. I know what you’re thinking. Lynn you’ve totally gone over the edge this time. Stay with me. The butter gives it a mellow creamy touch.
Save a bit of the pasta water to thin down the sauce if needed.
*****from the Recipe Box:
Try the sugar trick on all your tomato dishes. My mom would even slice up tomatoes and sprinkle them with sugar for dinner.
and remember: Expect the bullshit, but never accept it. Big kiss, Lynn
