When it comes to preparing your sauce, get creative. Fresh herbs pack plenty of punch and really can elevate a dish. Canned fish, leftover veggies or a splash of cream also add depth of flavor as does grated or crumbled cheese.



Combine tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper in a large serving bowl; let sit at room temperature for at least 20 minutes. Toss with hot pasta, herbs and cheese.

Ways to mix it up:

  • Toss in sliced olives, rinsed capers or chopped roasted bell peppers
  • Add a dash of crushed red pepper flakes
  • Stir in walnuts or minced anchovy fillets
