How to make it

  • Melt butter in large pot on medium-low heat. Add garlic and pepper and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add carrots, celery and onion. Turn heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are semi-translucent and tender (not crisp).
  • Stir in tomatoes, including juice, and parsley and sugar. Turn heat to low and let simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in parmesan cheese and simmer 5 more minutes. Taste and adjust spices and/or sugar. Mix corn starch and water and gradually stir into pot until slightly creamy (may not need all of mixture). Stir and cook a minute or two longer.
  • Serve on thin spaghetti or capellini.

    Think I'm going to take the long road and do a simmer to give the ingredients time to join flavors and thicken naturally. I'm not a fan of thickening up pasta sauce with corn starch or flour unless under an extreme time constraint.
