When you have a well stocked pantry it's easy to pull together flavorful and delicious dinners. I love keeping pasta and canned tomatoes on hand for those nights where I want something hearty and comforting in a hurry.
You don't need a lot of ingredients to put a beautiful meal on the table, but the ingredients you use always matter. I always keep Tuttorosso tomatoes in my pantry and for this Tuttorosso Pomodoro Sauce I am grabbing a can of Crushed Tomatoes.
Tuttorosso Tomatoes are the best selling Italian inspired canned tomatoes in the US, and it shows in the quality and flavor. From the moment you open the can, you can see the difference. Their tomatoes look like they've just been plucked from the field and it shines through in the flavor.

Tuttorosso Pomodoro Sauce, Easy as 1-2-3
I promised you dinner in a hurry, so let's get the pasta pot out and get to making our beautiful, fresh, crimson sauce. The only decision to make is spaghetti or linguine?
Besides the Tuttorosso Italian Inspirations Crushed Tomatoes, you are going to need four additional ingredients. For the aromatics in this sauce you need an onion and garlic cloves, for a pop of freshness we're adding basil, and then a little olive oil to cook everything in.
To begin with, heat your olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add five garlic cloves that have been smashed. There's no need for any fancy knife skills in this recipe. It's all about infusing the oil with the garlic flavor. Let the garlic cook until golden brown and fragrant. It will make your kitchen smell amazing and have your family checking to see when dinner is ready.
Now that your garlic is pretty and golden, add your can of Tuttorosso tomatoes, along with one onion that has been cut in half. I love that I don't even have to dice anything. The fresh basil also goes in at this time. Allow the tomato mixture to come to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and allow it to simmer for 20 minutes. As it simmers away it will reduce a little, thicken, and intensify in tomato flavor.
Go ahead and get that pot of water boiling for the pasta. This sauce works great with whatever your favorite is, including low carb and gluten free options.
After 20 minutes, remove the smashed garlic cloves and halved onions. Toss with your pasta, and if you like, garnish with fresh parmesan and extra basil. Buon appetito!
