How do I thicken a pasta sauce? Mine usually comes out very soupy rather than thick and creamy.

I peel and seed fresh tomatoes before using them in a sauce otherwise there is a lot of extra liquid. The best way to lose the liquid is by slowly reducing it on a low flame until it reaches the consistency you want. You need to stir regularly otherwise the ingredients could burn. A quick fix is to add a little flour to the sauce but you run the risk of a floury taste and it adds extra calories.

  • A more natural way to thicken the sauce would be to add tomato paste. Do it by tablespoons to see how much you need.
