Tips and tricks for a better sauce

Sliced tomatoes

First of all, if you want a thicker sauce, try adding some tomato paste.

  • For a spicier sauce, add some diced tomatoes with green chilies.
  • Add a little honey or brown sugar if you want a sweeter sauce.
  • Try using different types of vinegar for different flavors. White vinegar will give you a sharper flavor, while cider vinegar will be sweeter.
  • Use fresh herbs for the best flavor. Dried herbs can be used in a pinch, but they won’t have the same flavor profile.
  • To make a creamier sauce, try adding some sour cream or Greek yogurt.
  • If you want a smoky flavor, try adding smoked paprika.
  • If you want a tangy flavor, add some Worcestershire sauce.
  • For a richer flavor, try using beef, chicken, or vegetable broth instead of water.
  • You can always adjust the seasoning to your taste. Add more salt, pepper, or spices as desired.
  • The sauce can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a week.
  • Sauce can also be frozen for up to six months.
  • Reheat the sauce slowly over low heat to avoid scorching.

Stir in some cooked ground beef, chicken, or sausage for a heartier meal.

And finally, serve the sauce over your favorite pasta, rice, or potatoes.
