Canned Tomatoes, 2 cans, pureed
Garlic, 3 tsp, minced or chopped
Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
Garlic powder, 3 tbsp
Oregano, ground, 1 tbsp
Basil, 2 tbsp
Thyme, ground, 1 tbsp
Riunite Lambrusco, 1/4 cup
Rice Noodles, 3 cup
Riunite Lambrusco: This is a wine that has a fantastic flavor when concentrated or added to sauces, and the slight sweetness of the wine eliminates the need for adding a pinch of sugar to the sauce.
Adding pasta water to sauce: This serves to slightly thicken the sauce, eliminating the need for tomato paste; helps the sauce stick to the noodles; and marries the flavors of the sauce and noodles. The starch in the water has been accounted for in the calorie count.
Cooking noodles in the sauce: this finishes cooking the noodles, allowing them to soak up some of the sauce flavor, creating a more robust and flavorful dish.
Slowly add pureed tomatoes to wok, incorporating garlic-infused oil. Add garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, and dried thyme to taste. Add about a 1/4 cup of Riunite Lambrusco (semi-sweet red wine). Continue cooking sauce in wok on low.
Add package of rice spaghetti noodles to boiling water with salt. Cook at a boil, stirring occasionally, approx 8 minutes. Turn off burner, but do not drain.
Add 1-2 ladles full of pasta water to simmering sauce, incorporating thoroughly. Once incorporated, add the noodles to the sauce in the wok, tossing to coat. Cook pasta for approx. 5 more minutes over low before serving.
