Author Notes

Taking your tomato sauce to a whole new level. This is a rich and creamy sauce that will stick to any pasta, including zucchini pasta, that you top it over or what I like to do is you top in on a flaky white fish. In here you will find a harmonious combination of butter, olive oil, and egg yokes that add a unique and deep richness to your classic tomato sauce. —Schlimm
