RECIPE NOTE Part of what makes Italian food so great is the focus on high quality, simple ingredients. Therefore we reccomend using San Marzano canned tomatoes for your tomato sauces. If the tomatoes you use for this sauce aren't San Marzano or not tomatoes harvested around peak tomato season, you can use 1-2 tsps of brown sugar to help tone down the acidity and help to mimic the natural sweetness of high quality tomatoes. If you don't have pasta rocks on hand it is still important to season your pasta water! Salting the water is the only time the pasta itself is going to be seasoned so make sure your water is salty like the sea. We reccomend adding 1 Tbsp of salt for every 4 quarts of water.
