Feel like you're in a rut when it comes to pasta sauce? Try something new – and easy – to top your pasta:
Marinara. Red tomato-based meatless sauce
Alfredo. Creamy white sauce
Pesto. A basil-based blend with pine nuts, olive oil, garlic and cheese
Vodka. A dark-orange colored tomato-based sauce with cream and vodka
Ragu. (We’re talking about the type of sauce, not the brand name!) Red tomato-based sauce with meat
Pomodoro. Red sauce made from fresh tomatoes and cooked for longer than marinara sauce
Or, try this fresh idea for a light pasta sauce:
- Drizzle pasta with olive oil and splash with a bit of balsamic vinegar.
- Top it with grilled vegetables, grilled chicken or sliced olives and basil.
- Or use a jar of sauce, add chopped veggies and simmer.
