March is known for a lot of things-March Madness, the end of winter, and daffodils slowly emerging from the ground. Did you know that March is also known as National Sauce Month? While we celebrate Italian cuisine and delicious homemade sauce every day of the year, Basta Pasta loves to celebrate a little bit extra in March. Are you ready to celebrate?
Pesto is a lively sauce made from pine nuts, olive oil, parmesan cheese, and fresh basil. Since it’s such a versatile and flavorful sauce, it can be brushed on meats like grilled chicken or folded into freshly-made pasta. Pesto is the perfect way to take anything from a sandwich to a pasta salad to the next level.
While vodka sauce sounds like it wouldn’t be family-friendly, penne with vodka sauce is a classic Italian cuisine dish filled with a creamy vodka and tomato sauce and topped with bright basil. If you want to create a vodka sauce that is a little bit extra spicy, add a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes and shallots to the mixture as you cook. This is the perfect month to experiment with new ways of making your old favorites!
Marinara is the most popular sauce at Basta Pasta and other Italian restaurants throughout the world. This classic hails from timeless Italian cuisine and is made with delicious sun-ripened tomatoes, the perfect amount of seasoning, and cold pressed olive oil. The finished result is something that you will look forward to celebrating every month of the year.
Sweet Fudge Sauce
Okay, hear us out-fudge sauce might not be considered an Italian cuisine standard, but no dessert from our menu is complete without it. Sweet fudge sauce is the perfect way to end a meal, whether you want to serve it drizzled over ice cream or on top of a fresh-baked brownie!
