Her favorite sauces can be created in about 15-to-20 minutes. Understandably this celebrated cook has strong feelings about making and serving pasta. Here are a few of her prized tips: Dont overwhelm pasta with sauce. "A pool of sauce makes pasta terrible. Sauce is just a seasoning." Americans serve portions that are too large. "Pasta should be just a serving size, approximately 3 ounces per person." If fresh tomatoes are not available, its okay to used canned ones. "Always buy whole canned imported tomatoes as an alternative." When making tomato sauce, blanch, peel and seed tomatoes. "For blanching, plinge tomatoes in boiling water for a minute or less. Drain, and as soon as they are cool enough to handle, skin and cut up in coarse pieces. Use a large pot for cooking pasta. "You have to have a lot of water. It cooks the pasta better and faster. Homemade pastas cook more quickly than store-bought." Remember you are eating pasta with sauce, not sauce with pasta! Use these tips and savor every bite!
