Marinara Sauce and maybe homemade noodles?

lbs | Oct 17, 2006 07:12 PM

Hello all -

I am running the Chicago marathon on Sunday and I need to carb up. I also found out that my main source of distraction will be at his parents house this weekend. Thus I am on my own with just my nervousness/restlessness and without any of my normal ways of relaxation (can't run, can't drink, etc) for Saturday day/night. I was hoping to do make basic pasta and marinara sauce as a way to calm myself down. I think I have the basics of the sauce. I did a search on the forum. A couple of questions:

1) How long does the sauce need to simmer?
2) If I don't use cans of tomatoes, how many tomatoes should I buy or is just as easy using cans? (I want this to be somewhat labor intensive.)

For the noodles:

1) How do you make them? I have a small kitchen with only one counter. Seriously. I go batty at times in there.

Thanks for reading through all of this blatther. I'm freaking out and I still have 5 days!
