Italian Red Sauce Recipes: Leftover Logic

Red Sauce Recipes: Leftover LogicGreat Italian food means pasta, and every great plate of pasta starts with a delicious red sauce (well, not every dish, but you know what we mean!). Once you’ve got the sauce, you’ve got the meal — for a couple nights running. The one we’ve got here is quick — yes, done in just 10 minutes! (Click here for the recipe.)


The best thing about whipping up this 10-Minute Red Sauce is that you won’t have to cut corners on a nutritious staple for all kinds of other recipes. And you can go crazy with pasta shapes, but here’s a hint for matching sauce with pasta: The smoother the sauce, the better you’ll be with a thin pasta, like spaghetti or linguine; once your sauce has little chunks of meat, vegetables, or whatever to deal with, you’ll want them to have some cracks and crevices in which to hide. In the latter case, go for something “groovy,” like penne or rotini. A tubular shape, like rigatoni, works especially well for a sauce with bigger chunks, giving them a space to crawl inside.


You’ll love making up a big batch of red sauce (check your garden for any herbs still lingering around), especially when you realize how many easy Italian dinners you’ll get out of it. Buon appetito!

    My dream retirement is to never ever need to deal with all the cold of winter or heat of summer. An A-Frame in Vermont plus a cottage by the sea near Savannah.

    I do not really care how or once i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box a single day. A nice, tangible surprise. I am for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up to the folks who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious naturel of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival with the letter and the words of the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like best about The Rumpus is that I by no means know what I’ll browse that day. Or if there just isn’t one which day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t come across anything to say or there was way too much likely on.
