It’s that time of the year again when tomatoes are dirt cheap, my street vendor was selling them for Rs3/kg this morning. Yes that cheap. And this is also the time I stock up on the tomato goodness for a while, tomato pickle, sun-dried tomatoes, pasta sauces and this year I am even thinking of making a tomato ketchup.
For me Marinara is a pantry staple, has to be there at home ALL the time, that this makes for child’s most favorite and easiest to put together pasta helps too. Boil the pasta, stir fry some veggies, dunk the sauce and voilà dinner or lunch box ready in minutes. Making the sauce is time-consuming yes but fairly simple and it doesn’t need much of your attention anyways.
and the use of this sauce is not limited to pastas, I use it for pizzas, I use it sometimes for sandwich spreads, as a dip. It can even be used as a sauce to be had with grilled chicken or grilled fish. Truly a multi use sauce.
