The Canned Tomato Sauce Bobby Flay Can't Stop Using
By Camryn Teder
Bobby Flay has been working as a chef for over three decades — but he's still human, and he can't make a cedar plant burger from scratch every night. Sometimes even Flay relies on canned ingredients, and there is one premade tomato sauce he just can't get enough of.
Flay’s pasta sauce brand of choice is Simply Sugo, which makes pasta sauces as a base for original recipes. That's exactly how Flay uses it, by adding ingredients of his own to heighten the flavor.
One of the best parts about Flay's method is that since the base of the sauce is already done, the rest takes mere minutes. Flay likes to add “Calabrian chilies or some crushed red peppers, fresh basil, or some oregano — or whatever kind of herbs I have — some Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and you have pasta and it's perfect."
