Five-Tomatoes Sauce “Bucatini”

How to make a special tomato sauce?

Tomato Sauce is probably one of the most famous recipes of Italy! Its simplicity is the taste.
There are many ways to cook a delicious tomato sauce… but this one is definitely a special one!

We are going to use 5 different types of tomatoes: fresh cherry tomatoes, tomato sauce, peeled tomatoes, tomato paste and Sundried Tomatoes!You can use any kind of pasta, but the best shape is “Bucatini” pasta. It is a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the centre that makes it perfect to absorb the sauce!

The result is amazing, just try my:

    why no garlic?

      Thanks David, this is for sure a great suggestion! You can add garlic to this sauce in two ways: 1) frying 1 or 2 whole garlic cloves with the onion and removing them when the sauce is ready, before tossing the pasta; or 2) finely slicing 1 or 2 cloves and adding the minced garlic to the tomato sauce. Let the garlic cook with the sauce and don’t remove it at the end… it will taste even more garlicky this way! Yumm!
