  • San Marzano Whole Tomatoes – an essential in any good tomato sauce is getting the best quality canned tomatoes you can find! I always use San Marzano whole tomatoes, then crush them before adding to my recipes.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Garlic
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! This is what gives this spaghetti arrabbiata it’s signature flavor.
  • Fresh Basil
  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt: I like to use a pink Himalayan Sea Salt in my kitchen, which has more natural minerals than plain processed table salt.  It’s inexpensive, so I’d recommend this salt if you’re looking for an easy way to level up your spice pantry.
  • Tellicherry Peppercorns: It’s amazing the flavor difference you can get with really good tellicherry black pepper.  I like these tellicherry peppercorn which is the same price is buying pre-ground, and has exponentially more flavor.
