How To: Spruce up Sauce from a Jar

Welcome to the first of (hopefully) many in the " How To" series! This firs t one is just an easy way to spruce up any pasta sauce from a jar. You don't have to make homemade sauce if you want great flavor, but you also don't have to settle for just the typical jar sauce either.

Here's what I like to do:

  • Saute a few cloves of garlic and some sliced onions in olive oil
  • Slice up Italian sausage and throw in with onions (ground sausage fine too... whatever you have)
  • Pour in jar of sauce (vodka sauce is what I had... anything you like will do)
  • Add a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar or a full flavored wine if you like-reduce the sauce to your liking
  • Add in some chopped fresh basil or parsley. Wilt the herbs as you stir them in and add some freshly graded Parmesan Cheese
  • Pour over your favorite noodle (whole wheat penne) and enjoy!
