Never Buy Store Bought Pasta Sauce Again: Red Basic Tomato Sauce with Bucatini Noodles

If you've ever looked at the nutrition label of a pre-made pasta sauce you know it's packed with sugar and salt. This homemade recipe uses San Marzano crushed tomatoes which is an heirloom tomato. These tomatoes have a much thicker skin with fewer seeds and the taste is stronger, sweeter and less acidic. Makes for a very tasty alternative to the store bought sauces.  

Instructions:
4 cloves garlic sliced thin
Kosher salt
Red Chili Flakes
Olive Oil
28 oz can San Marzano tomatoes, crushed
3/4 cup Parmesan
12 leaves fresh basil
1 package Bucatini noodles

Directions:
Start water - salted - to boil and get pasta cooking before sauce. In a separate pan add 4T olive oil, garlic, 1T kosher salt and red chili flakes over medium heat just until garlic is fragrant - don't brown. Add tomatoes. Bring to a simmer for 6 minutes. Turn off heat 1/2 cup parmesan and basil torn or julienned. Add pasta to the sauce - top with 1/4 cup parmesan.

Living in Boston I got hooked on all things buffalo sauce. This baked cauliflower tossed in buffalo sauce is where it’s at. It’s a healthy and satisfying change from my go to (and insanely unhealthy) chicken buffalo dip. If you want that recipe too, DM me 😉 I’ve found that if you're a fan of buffalo sauce you can't go wrong with these tasty cauliflower bites. Makes as a great side or just as a snack!

Ingredients:
1 large head of cauliflower 
2 heaping tbsp ghee, melted 
4 garlic cloves, minced 
1/2 cup Franks hot sauce 
1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped 
1 tbsp green onions 
Ranch dressing (optional) 

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
Melt ghee and combine with garlic and Franks hot sauce. 
Chop cauliflower into bite size pieces. Mix sauce with cauliflower in a bowl. Garnish with green onions and parsley. 
Place in a baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. 
For a more crispy cauliflower, remove any access water from baking dish after 18-20 minutes in the oven and broil for remaining time.
