The Garlic Mistake That Is Ruining The Taste Of Your Sauce
A poorly made tomato sauce can ruin a dish, but perfectly cooked sauce can take a meal to a whole new level of flavor. A good tomato sauce isn't complete without garlic, and while you may think it’s a no-brainer, there's a preferred way to add the pungent cloves to ensure the tastiest possible sauce.
Cooking the garlic incorrectly could be a tragic mistake as undercooked garlic can result in an overpowering flavor, while overcooked or burned garlic can leave an acrid or bitter taste in the sauce. The best way to avoid these issues is to wait until the oil is piping hot before adding in your garlic.
When the pan and oil are hot enough, the garlic doesn’t have a chance to clump up, and it will cook very quickly. Once the garlic is added, make sure to keep an eye on it and only let it cook until it's golden brown; when your sauce is done, feel free to add some fresh pasta, or enjoy a big spoonful straight from the pan.
