Quick Pasta Sauce

I love pasta and sauce.  Over the years I’ve shared several pasta sauces on a scrumptious life – Marinara Sauce, Puttanesca Sauce and Spaghetti Sauce.  I like to spend a weekend afternoon making them in big batches.  Then freezing them to have them at the ready.    Sometimes, however, I just like to pull together an easy sauce for a quick weekday meal.

Here’s my recipe for Quick Pasta Sauce.  It can be ready in about the time it takes to cook the pasta!  The base of the sauce is a can of petite diced tomatoes, to which I add a few ingredients and voila!

btw- the pasta shown is from Storico Fresco, a handmade pasta shop in the Buckhead area of Atlanta that I just visited for the first time.  What a delightful little shop!  They offer fresh pasta, sauces and pre-made dishes and their staff is very knowledgeable.  I’ll definitely be visiting again soon!
