  • When you cook pasta, put a couple tablespoons of the salted pasta water into your sauce.  It will help the sauce stick to the pasta.
  • If flavor is more important than sauce, toss the pasta with a couple tablespoons of butter before putting on the sauce.


  • For a meat sauce, use about two thirds 85/15 lean ground chuck and one third ground pork ( for a bit of sweetness )
  • For a vegetable sauce be sure to your your mirpois trio:  Carrot, celery and onion
  • You can enhance your sauce with a bit of wine.  White wine gives a good fresh flavor.  Red wine gives a stronger bold statement.
  • Sear your tomato paste before putting it into your sauce.  It will help develop the flavor and concentrate the sugars.
