To-ma-to Paste

You would never know it, but tomato paste works wonders in pasta sauces. It adds depth and a richness that you wouldn't get from a watery can of tomatoes.

I stole this tip from Giada...what else is the Food Network good for? :

Fry your usual minced garlic and chopped onion in olive oil, salt and pepper. Then add a dollop of tomato paste and mix around. THEN add a few ladles of boiling pasta water to the tomato paste mixture and voila, you have one spankin' good, and very simple tomato sauce! Add some grated parm or romano to bring it all together and undercut the sourness of the tomato paste and you got yourself a winner.

This is what you can do when you don't have a good marinara at-hand or if you're too lazy to make some. I can't guarantee that it will be the best tomato sauce, but it's quick, simple and easy. Good luck and thank you for reading.
