I’ve been itching to get back to Italy. When we travelled there a few years ago one of my favorite aspects of the trip was, of course, the authentic food. In my opinion, nothing can compare to a hearty bowl of pasta, fresh bread, and a glass of red wine (or two…). Although my all-time favorite pasta is spaghetti limoné (one of Frank Prisinzano’s “methods”), this simple spaghetti sauce recipe is hands down my second favorite option. I’ve been making various versions of this recipe over the years and have found that it’s nearly foolproof. The most important ingredients of this spaghetti sauce recipe are good quality canned tomatoes and butter.
Hope you enjoy this little taste of Italy!
There are so many ways to tweak this simple spaghetti sauce recipe to make it a little different every time. Some things that I’ve added in the past have been Italian sausage, sautéed ground sirloin, fresh basil, and red pepper flakes. Check out my list of 20 Wines Under $20 for the perfect pairing to this pasta. Ciao!
