This tomato sauce is perfect. Simple, fresh tasting and perfect.
Since we are not yet in local tomato season, I opted for canned San Marzano tomatoes.
The vegetables are onions, celery and carrots--sounds like the beginnings of a French sauce but no--the flavor is clearly Italy.
I wish I had cut the tomatoes into a little smaller pieces. I only cut them into rough quarters. Other than that, I loved the sauce.
Usually we eat a long noodle at our house, like fettuccine, because it's my husband's preference but for this I cooked (according to Marcella's suggestion) rigatoni which is my favorite.
I had some friends over for dinner and we all loved it!
