Though pasta sauces are very much available in market with many variations, I still prefer to make mine at home. It may look like a lot of work but it’s not. It’s easy to make & has complicated flavors that will take your pasta to another level. Also since it’s homemade you can choose the amount of oil or salt or chilli that goes in it minus the preservatives.
This red lucious goodness can also be used in a number of ways other than pasta. Spread it on a pizza(learn to make your pizza from scratch) or make bread pizza, suji toast, just a plain sandwich. Ideas are many…😁😁
If you want to know other recipes using basil you can try basil pesto.
