New York Times CLASSIC Marinara Sauce
Ciao I miei ragazzi!
I love the New York Times! I can actually remember the first time I read the New York Times, it was 1983 and I was 12 years old. I had just finished the book “It’s not the end of the world” by Judy Blume and the side character Val talked about how she would read the New York Times the whole way through every Sunday. I walked across the street to the public library on a Saturday and sat at the table and flipped through the whole thing! I could not see myself ever reading it all the way through on a regular basis but it did intrigued me and I have loved it ever since.
While I don’t read it all the way through, I love to flip from section to section reading whatever catches my eye. It is so easy to read now with the app. NYTimes has also come out with a Cooking app that is AMAZING. I use it first if I am looking for inspiration.
I do read the Dining & Wine section in its entirety religiously though. There is so much to learn! I love to try and find new recipes, or new foods. I love to learn new kitchen skills.
A few years ago in the NY Times an article and corresponding recipe for the “Classic Marinara Sauce” was posted. It seemed so simple. I couldn’t believe how few ingredients it called for or that it didn’t need to simmer all day. It went against everything I had ever done when I made homemade red sauce. The history of it was fascinating and so was the simplicity of the whole recipe. I knew what we would be having for dinner the next night!
We had it the very next day for supper and it immediately became part of our weekly go to quick menu ideas. For you Lochlan it did not make you sick – most jarred pasta sauces never sit right with you and for you Bryson it was the perfect quick recipe for to make in your University apartment.
This is better and faster than going out for fast-food and can be used to make so many different dishes, from the simple sauce and pasta noodles, pizza, chicken parmesan to meatball subs.
Mamma di amore!!!
Try this sauce on homemade noodles! YUM!!
