How To....Turn Ordinary Sauce to Extraordinary!

Having a long day and just wanting to throw a pasta dish together quickly?

With just 3 simple ingredients added to a regular bottle of sauce, you can have a sauce that feels like you slaved over a stove for hours and made it completely from scratch!
My mom taught me this tip and I want to share it with you!

Here is how you make ordinary store bought sauce extraordinary!

Take one bottle of store bought sauce....
My favorite types are Roasted Garlic & Onion or Tomato Basil.

And then add....
-2 tsp of Sugar
-1/2 to 1 tbsp dried Basil
-2 to 3 tbsp Heavy Cream

I wouldn't add dried Basil to Tomato Basil sauce since you already have basil in it, but you should add it to others though!

These 3 simple ingredients will kick any sauce up a notch and make it super yummy!
