The idea of making homemade pasta sauce might sound intimidating, but it's a lot less complicated than you'd think. And I'm not talking about a more involved project like a beef bolognese. My go-to way to prepare pasta is with a lemony, garlicky, buttery sauce that comes together in minutes — and practically out of nothing. The truth is that a "sauce" for pasta can be as simple as butter and parmesan cheese (cacio e pepe, anyone?), and a few simple staples, like lemon and red pepper flakes, can jazz it up and wildly enhance the flavor.
If you're like me and you believe there's nothing more comforting than a bowl of garlicky, cheesy pasta and you also don't have the patience to spend a lot of time on an elaborate meal, read on to discover the best and easiest way to prepare an A+ pasta sauce in 10 simple steps. You'll soon be adding this to your pasta rotation, too.
