Homemade Rigatoni With San Marzano Sauce


500 grams of Homemade Rigatoni or Store-bought, cooked el-dente

San Marzano Sauce
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Large Yellow Onion, peeled and chopped
4 Cloves of Garlic, peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp of Peperoncino (chili in olive Oil) available at Italian Stores or 2 tsp of Chili Flakes
2 Tins 796ml/28oz San Whole Marzano Tomatoes, reserved tomato juice from 1 tin
1/4 Cup firmly packed fresh Basil leaves, torn
2 Tbsp Chopped Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, chopped
2 tsp Cane Sugar
Sea Salt to taste

Place oil in heavy saucepan over moderately high heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute, stirring occasionally, until it just starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Then stir in the Peperoncino or chili flakes.

Empty contents of tomato cans into a sieve, reserving 1 tin tomato liquid. Squeeze the juice out of the tomatoes with your hands, letting the juice out of the tomatoes with your hands, letting the juice run through the sieve. (The remaining tomatoes should be a coarse, chunky pulp.) Add the tomatoes and reserved liquid to pan with basil and parsley. Simmer for 10 minutes, season with sugar, salt, pepper and serve with pasta with some freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Serves 6-8

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
