Simple guide to prepare ingenious tomato sauce with secret ingredient.
|4||pc||clove of garlic|
|6||pinches||black ground pepper|
|1||tbs||brown cane sugar|
Get the ingredients ready in the kitchen.
Remove the garlic cloves from the bulb and peel them.
Sprinkle the garlic cloves with salt so that they do not develop a bitter taste when chopped.
Chop garlic into small pieces, I use a cleaver for this.
Garlic cubes pot
Put garlic in the pot with olive oil and get ready on the stove.
Cut the tomatoes in half.
Cut the tomatoes in half cleverly so that the stem end remains only on one tomato half.
Cut out the stem ends of the tomatoes.
Cut the tomato halves into small pieces.
Sauté the garlic in the pot and let it take a light brown color.
Add the tomatoes to the pot.
Season with salt, pepper, sugar, chili, thyme and marjoram and tamari.
Cook the tomatoes over high heat on the stove, stirring constantly.
Finely grate the Parmasan cheese and place in a bowl ready.
Supplement tomato paste
After 10 minutes of cooking, add the tomato paste to the pot and stir. The sauce binds.
Boil cooking water for pasta, season with salt and olive oil.
Put the spaghetti and cook until well al dente.
Refine tomato sauce
Add butter to the tomato sauce and season to taste.
Pluck basil and optional parsley and finely cut into strips.
Drain the spaghetti, drain well and add to the tomato sauce.
Mix the pasta well with the sauce.
Prepare hot plates and turn up the pasta with a meat fork and ladle and direct it onto the plate.
Decorate with Parmesan cheese and herbs.
Pour some cold olive oil on the pasta and serve quickly.
I wish you a good appetite!

3. Cooking Tips for Tomato Sauce
I already described the secret ingredient Tamari in the introduction. Here are some more tips:
-> The typical Italian tomato sauce flavor comes from the light brown roasted garlic.
-> Marmande tomatoes are particularly fleshy tomatoes, tasty a blast and when I get these I grab.
-> The preparation works just as well with other types of tomatoes or canned tomatoes.
-> If you use tomatoes on the vine, then cook the panicles in the sauce, that gives flavor.
-> With canned tomatoes I prefer tomatoes whole, I crush the tomatoes as needed for a nice overall look.
-> With canned tomatoes you halve the preparation time of the sauce.
-> I prefer thyme, marjoram or oregano as herb base. Please use herbs of Provence only sparingly.
-> The sauce basically does not need wine. You can supplement with dry red wine or white wine or Prosecco.
-> The tomato paste provides the binding of the sauce and gives a deep flavor.
-> I usually add fresh herbs only at the end, so the green color is preserved.
-> Cook the pasta at the variants, mix with sauce a little more al dente. The hot sauce cooks the pasta.
-> Drain the pasta carefully, otherwise you will dilute the sauce when mixing.
-> I usually add fresh herbs at the end to preserve the green color.
-> Tamari and soy sauce are the new trendy seasoning for tomato sauce. The addition strengthens umami and boosts the taste.
