How do you make pasta sauce from scratch?
All of these pasta sauce recipes are made from scratch and are very easy to make.
Even if you are new to cooking, homemade pasta sauce is something that you can definitely make. My kids have made most of these pasta sauces on their own, with very limited help from me.
Most pasta sauce recipes can be on the table in less than 30 minutes, which makes them perfect for those nights that you don’t have a lot of time to cook.
What is the best way to thin pasta sauce?
The best way to thin pasta sauce if it is too thick is with some of the pasta cooking water. Save some of the pasta cooking water when you drain your pasta and set it aside to thin the pasta sauce if necessary.
Should you rinse pasta?
If you are serving your pasta hot, with pasta sauce, don’t rinse it. When you rinse the pasta, it rinses off the starch which is needed for the pasta sauce to cling to the pasta.
The only time you should rinse your pasta after cooking it is when you are using it in a cold dish, like this Greek pasta salad, or if you aren’t using it right away.
