What the Hell?

Simple, versatile and tasty red sauce. Not only is it great as a pasta sauce, it’s also a fantastic pizza sauce and adds some sass to soups or tomato based chowders. Use it, abuse and love every minute of it.

What the hell should I drink?

Red, red, wine. A full, sock you in the face, oaky Cabernet would be my first choice.

What the hell should I listen to?

I can never get enough pasta. Can’t get enough of you, baby by, ? and the Mysterians seems fitting.

This is my go-to, basic red sauce. It's easy, makes a ton and freezes very well.
