Recipes Tips

If you want a smoother sauce, you can use a blender or food processor to puree the roasted tomatoes before adding the other ingredients. Be careful not to over-blend, or the sauce will become too thin.

For a spicier sauce, you can add red pepper flakes or a chopped jalapeno pepper to the mix.

If you're short on time, you can skip the roasting step and use canned crushed tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes.

Experiment with different herbs and spices to find your perfect flavor. Some popular additions include oregano, thyme, and rosemary.

Remember that the quality of your ingredients will impact the flavor of your sauce. Use the best quality San Marzano tomatoes, olive oil, and fresh basil you can find.
