this is a basic tomato sauce that i make all the time and then add stuff to. it takes 3 pots, and is done in 4 steps:
step three: put water on to boil for the pasta. i use whole grain kamut pasta from eden organics, which is great and has more protein in it than whole wheat. however, you can use any pasta you want for this. have at it. cook according to package directions. and you know, drain it when it's done. meanwhile...
the beauty of this "recipe" is step four. in step four, you can basically saute whatever the hell you want and add it to the tomato sauce. here are some suggestions:
- fresh veggies like zucchini, broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes, etc for a primavera thing
- chicken, rosemary, and a little cream for a pink sauce thing (also good with spinach)
- ground beef and pork for a bolognese thing
- skip the saute altogether and just add some fresh basil and a bunch of different cheeses for a marguerita thing
