An Italian classic, pasta at its finest. Just fry some bacon or pancetta, add the tomatoes and spices and serve. Delicious!
Used different ingredients. I recently had this dish at a local restraunt and wanted to duplicate it. Based on my dinner and previous reviews, I made some changes and it turned out great! While sauteeing the onions and garlic, I added 1/2 chopped green pepper and after adding the tomatoes, I added apprx 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp dried oregano. In the future, I may try adding some Italian sausage (but to do this, I may have to add an additional tin of tomatoes to cover the pasta adequately). The bacon gives this dish a subtle smokey flavour. Thanks Elizabeth...for great dining at home! - 21 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. This is a great pasta sauce! I sweat the onions and garlic in a little olive oil first, then add bacon. When the bacon is cooked, I add 100ml dry white wine and let it reduce. Then I add the tomatoes and herbs/spices, and let it simmer to blend all the flavours together. Yum! - 21 Jul 2008
This recipe is about right. The only things that should be noted is that, after tomatoes are added, they should cook for more than 10 minutes. You need about 20 minutes of simmering or the sauce won't be cooked. Remember also to add salt and pepper to taste before finishing. - 21 Jul 2008
