Almost everyone loves a good plate of pasta because a good sauce on some well-cooked noodles can be the best meal. However, you really need that sauce to be perfect in order to nail down a good pasta. Otherwise, your entire meal will taste bad, and you’ll find yourself preferring just plain noodles. Here are some great ingredients to add to your pasta sauce to create a flavor you can truly enjoy!
Diced Fresh Garlic
Garlic is one of the best ingredients you can add to almost any sauce. It just makes things taste more interesting and authentic, especially when it comes to a sauce. Fresh garlic is perfect for pasta sauce, as it blends well with most other flavors in sauces. A few fresh cloves will make your meal taste truly homemade.
Sometimes, you need a bit more substance in your sauce. The right way to add that can be to put in a good meat ingredient. There are many options you can try, but one of the most flavorful ones that mixes well with a sauce is chicken sausage. Heat up some sausage and throw it in the sauce to cook. Just make sure you familiarize yourself with what chicken sausage is and how to cook it first. Once you do, you’ll love how it melds its flavors and makes a great meat sauce for your pasta.
Include Hot Peppers
Not enough people incorporate spiciness into their cooking. But it’s one of the best flavors you can include in a meal. A good amount of heat will liven up any dish and make it one you won’t forget! That’s why hot pepper is a great ingredient to add to your pasta sauces. It works well with everything from tomato to alfredo sauces. You can add in as much or as little as you want to give it a small kick or really heat things up in your kitchen. It all depends on what you want in your meal.
These are just a few of the ideas you can try to help elevate your pasta sauces. You can make any sauce taste much better by adding just a few ingredients—even a store-bought one. You can also mix and match these ingredients, adding whatever flavors you want and creating your own favorite pasta sauces.
