I made this tomato sauce at work, because kids- of all ages- love spaghetti with tomato sauce; and even though it’s “simple”, spaghetti with tomato sauce is life. I DARE YOU not to love this recipe…it’s simply impossible.

The SECRET to this recipe is to layer the flavours. You’d be foolish to toss the ingredients into a pot and hope for the best; NO, instead you build those flavours like the motherf*cking kitchen goddess you are!


Best ever tomato sauce

Heat butter and olive oil in a medium sized pot on medium high heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook, stirring, for 7 minutes.

Add whole cherry tomatoes and sliced roasted red pepper to the pot, and cook, stirring, for 7-10 minutes- buy your red peppers already roasted, the effort is wasted making them yourself.

Add dried thyme, dried oregano and coconut sugar to the pot and stir.

MEANWHILE cook 1 package of spaghetti pasta (white, brown, quinoa– I’ll let you be the judge).

Add strained tomatoes and red wine to the pot and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Toss the reduced sauce with drained pasta and slurp slurp slurp!

I don’t believe those recipes where you are told to throw everything in the pot and wait for the meal to cook by itself. I am all in for creating layers of flavour and you can only do that by cooking properly each ingredient, like you did for this dish.
