As of late, I have found myself incredibly interested in perfecting a red sauce recipe.
While I don't have the recipe in front of me, I know most of what I put in it off the top of my head. I would like to know if anyone has some tasty additions I could try, or substitutions I should make. Really, I am looking for any advice at all that would help me improve the taste of my sauce. Please note that I am going for a "lighter" tasting sauce, if that makes any sense at all.
The ingredients are the following ones, as far as I remember:
- 3 tbsp Extra Virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic (mashed)
- 1/4 cup white onion (chopped)
- 2 tsp oregano
- 4 tsp thyme
- 2 tsp basil
- 2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup white whine
- 1 can crushed red tomatoes
** And possibly some others I can't remember right now.
I would love to hear any of your tips!
