Blind Pasta Sauce Taste Test
Good Old Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce
For the Tomato Sauce
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. finely minced garlic
can crushed tomatoes
3 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried basil
pinch red pepper flakes
Kosher or coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper
For the Pasta
package dried spaghetti
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
2 tbsp. slivered fresh basil or a handful of whole leaves (optional)
- Make the tomato sauce: Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until it starts to turn golden, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes, if using (you can also wait and add the red pepper flakes to portions of the sauce at the end for those who like it hot). Season the sauce with salt and black pepper to taste and let come to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the sauce simmer gently until it thickens slightly and the flavors taste nicely melded, about 20 minutes (the sauce can simmer for much longer, if you want; it will get even richer and more concentrated). Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and/or black pepper or red pepper flakes as necessary.
- Prepare the pasta: Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add salt and let the water return to a boil. Add the pasta and cook it according to the package directions.
- Drain the pasta, return it to the pot, and pour about half of the tomato sauce over the pasta, stirring to combine. Transfer the pasta to a serving bowl or serve it in individual bowls, topping it with Parmesan, fresh basil, and red pepper flakes, as desired, or pass the toppings in small bowls at the table.
