After many hours of watching Mario Batali’s show, my dad decided to take the plunge and create his own pasta sauce recipe. The result is this fantastic Bill’s Primavera Plus Sauce Recipe which has become a family favorite.
Adjusted Recipe (no onions)
This recipe can be used as the base sauce for Cherri’s Quick Spaghetti Sauce (just omit the spices and substitute for the tomato sauce and tomato paste). I think my Dad created this recipe after hours of watching Mario Batali on the Food Network.
The original recipe, listed second, called for onions and shallots. We adjusted the recipe recently to be shallots only to accommodate a family member who has an onion allergy.
I really enjoy spending time in the kitchen with my Dad creating or recording recipes. We started this process about 20 years ago where we were in the kitchen with my Mom, writing down her recipes as she cooked them. I’m just thankful to be have the time with my Dad now to do the same with his recipes.
Thank you Dad for being an great role model, amazing dad and incredible Chef!
