Let’s get cookin’!


It’s so easy to make your own sauce, or as the Italians would say~ “Sugo”

Sugo…a.k.a. Pasta Sauce~

Ciao Tutti!

I thought I’d post a little online cooking tutorial for you to enjoy. It is broken into two parts—the original recording was too big to load it all as one.

Part One:

The recipe is from my soon-to-be released book Beyond the Pasta: Recipes, Language & Life with an Italian Family, which has an anticipated online presale date of June 1, 2010 and a release date of September 1, 2010. Soon!

Part Two:

You might be thinking, “Mark, it is so much easier to just open a jar of pre-made pasta sauce from the store.” On some basic level that might be true, but why not take the extra five minutes to make a much fresher, healthier, and better tasting sauce?

I hope this will show you how easy and rewarding it is to make sauce for 1 pound of pasta. And better yet, I hope it will encourage you to cook for someone you love—including yourself!

Buon appetito~
