Red sauce is not my favorite topping for pasta.
I enjoy the more fattening cream sauces.
But my friend Andrea makes THE best red sauce EVER.
And she gave me the recipe for my bridal shower.
1 lb hot italian sausage
2 tablespoon of olive oil
handful of basil
4-5 cloves of minced garlic
1 zucchini grated
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
2 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes in puree
S & P to taste
Cooked pasta of your choice
1. Heat olive oil in large pan, adding sausage, breaking with a spoon to brown.
2. Once sausage is browned add basil, garlic, onion and sauté about 5 minutes.
3. Add grated zucchini and cook for another 5 minutes.
4. Add 2 cans tomato puree and crushed red pepper.
5. Simmer 20 to 30 minutes.
Serve over your favorite pasta.
And possibly add some garlic bread.
