5-ingredient weeknight tomato sauce
I have found that a rich and satisfying tomato sauce does not require hours of simmering to be beautiful. It actually only takes about 30 minutes and 5 ingredients (I don’t count salt and pepper, okay, everyone better have that!). The secret ingredient? BUTTER. I know it sounds odd, but melting butter in the sauce at the very end adds creaminess and balances the sharp acidity of the tomato and really rounds everything out. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference it made. You are going to fall in love with this sauce, just as I have. Plus, it’s part of my Pantry Pasta series because most people will have the very few ingredients necessary for this pasta on hand. I love it with spaghetti or bucatini, but any pasta will work and be lovely! Happy eating folks!
