A Delicious Tomato Sauce Hack

This past weekend, my brother, Kevin and I had dinner together. We decided on spaghetti and meatballs with kale salad, and as my brother got started on the pasta sauce, he kept saying, “I want this to be a really good sauce, with tons of flavor.” So he threw in practically everything in the fridge, plus a secret ingredient: parmesan rind. I know this is a well established “life hack,” but I just feel compelled to tell you because I almost forgot myself, and I’ve never added it to tomato sauce (just soups and stocks). It added a wonderful cheesy, umami boost and I have to say, it might have been the best tomato sauce ever. So, save those rinds, people!

  1. Have you ever tried Marcella’s Hazan tomato sauce with the half onion that you keep whole and remove after cooking, and a bunch of butter? Sooooooo good!
