i was referring to the restaurant Pasta Pamadoro. I ate there a lot when it was in business. I think majority of people should still remember its dishes. I like the pasta with seafood in marinara sauce. my non professional opinion is the sauce is justa very thin coat, yet flavor is intense, and overall just tastes good. dont know how they make it.

Is the Pasta Pomodoro a chain? Never heard of it. Sometimes restaurant red sauce tastes better than homemade and sometimes worse. I find it to be better in small family restaurants.

restaurant food in general "taste better" than home cooked food because they use obnoxious amounts of salt, sugar, and fat. It's why usually only after you learn to cook decently, do you realize exactly how unhealthy eating out is. Restaurants generally dont earn any points for healthiness of the food, but give people what they want, which is the appearance of healthiness and taste.

red sauce in general is best made from scratch with tomatoes. Canned is second best. and pre bottled stuff is third. red sauce from scratch requires extra steps with the tomatoes, the right type and consistency tomatoes, and a much longer simmer time.

Probably a lot of garlic and salt.

Good red sauce is made with San Marzano tomatoes. There isn't a substitution. You must use the San Marzano. Not the type but the actual tomatoes.

Also, good olive oil and a good sea salt is imperative.

I've been in the restaurant business all my life and I've never seen a restaurant use canned sauce.

Tomato sauce for pasta is one of the easiest, cheapest things to make in a restaurant and there is absolutely no reason to use canned.

Even places like Olive Garden make a scratch sauce.
