How to Make Delicious Pasta Sauce:
Use ripe and red tomatoes. Red tomatoes adds sweetness to the sauce also adds bright red colour.
If you are a garlic lover, use as much as you like. I love garlic so i add a generous amount of it.
Addition of herbs is your choice. You can add lots of basil, oregano, italian herbs. Each herbs add different flavour.
4)Seasoning and Balancing Taste
Add the right amount of sugar, salt to balance the tomato sauce. If your tomatoes are too sour, add little extra sugar. If it is too sweet, skip adding the sugar.
