Ravioli with Homemade Tomato Sauce
When you have a 2nd generation Italian descendant in the family, pasta dishes are frequently on the menu rotation.
I try to mix up the different variations and make a few changes to my Homemade Tomato Sauce, depending on what type of pasta I’m serving.
This is my recipe for Ravioli with Homemade Tomato Sauce.
I love to talk about food and recipes with people when I’m out and about, and I’ve found that many people are intimidated by the thought of making Homemade Tomato Sauce.
I always reassure them that the task isn’t too daunting.
I think people see the required cook time and worry that it’s too involved.
But, it really isn’t.
GOOD sauce just needs time to simmer.
I also double or quadruple the recipe, and freeze or can it to use later.
It drastically reduces the amount of time required in the kitchen, so it can work for a weeknight meal.
First, gather all of your ingredients so everything is handy as you prepare the dish.
