3 Easy Ways to Get Yummy Pasta Sauce from Canned Tomatoes
Like many people, my absolute go-to for a quick dinner is pasta. I have a whole area of the pantry devoted to all shapes, sizes and lengths of pasta. My kids take turns picking out what kind we’ll have when it’s pasta night.
But I rarely keep sauce in the house – there’s just no need. Instead, I rely on canned tomatoes (stewed, diced, paste, crushed, etc), which I keep stocked right with the pasta, for those times that I'm in a tomato-sauce kind of mood. Really, going from canned tomatoes to sauce is so simple.
Ready in about 15 minutes, this creamy sauce is decadent and smooth. Try it on your favorite pasta. (I like it on good quality fresh ravioli.)
Got 20 minutes? Then you can whip up this simple marinara sauce. It’s perfect on pasta, chicken or as a dip for breadsticks or fried mozzarella.
A three-ingredient sauce and pasta, ready in 30 minutes? It’s as good as it gets!
