Spaghetti Sauce Roundup

It’s National Spaghetti Day. We love spaghetti especially when it’s served with an awesome sauce. Here are some recipes we’ve rounded up for you based on classic Italian sauces.

Carbonara combines eggs, cheese (pecorino romano or parmigiana regiano) and pancetta to make a rich sauce that coats spaghetti beautifully. Recipe here.

Marinara is a simple tomato sauce that, when prepared correctly, makes spaghetti a nice accompaniment to dishes like chicken, veal or eggplant parmigiana. This recipe from Ina Garten makes a quick (30 minutes!) and flavorful sauce. Recipe here.

Bolognese is a red sauce typically made with a mixture of beef, pork and veal and finished with cream. Onions, celery, carrots, onions, tomatoes and herbs form the base. The cream is what gives this sauce its richness. A bowl of spaghetti topped with bolognese is one of the ultimate comfort meals. Clearly Vikalinka understands this.

Aglio Oglio sounds super fancy but simply means garlic and oil. Garlic, olive oil and chili pepper tossed with spaghetti is quick and easy to make. The next time you grill meat or vegetables add this into the mix. You won’t be sorry. Bakerette gives step by step instructions in her recipe here.
