Balsamic Tomato Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by rochsann

This is a very easy pasta sauce, especially nice to make on busy nights. The basic recipe was adapted from the "Bon Appetit" November 2002 issue. The balsamic vinegar raises the sauce to a level above ordinary. It's a good sauce to play around with to make it your own.

A really good basic sauce. We didn't have red wine so we just skipped that and added a pinch of sugar, some red pepper flakes to give it spice and an 8oz can of sauce. Also used fresh basil instead. Will def make it again.
