Celebrity chef Bobby Flay has mastered the art of making elevated pasta dishes that are both traditional and innovative. He recommends using chunky tomato sauce for good texture, adding breadcrumbs for crunch, opting for avocado oil for a neutral flavor and higher smoke point, and adding sugar to balance the acidity of tomato sauce. Flay also suggests using anchovies for added flavor, using a food processor to make fresh pasta dough, and not snubbing a good pre-made sauce. He advises adding pasta water to create a creamy sauce and blistering cherry tomatoes for a fresh tomato sauce. Flay recommends using orecchiette pasta to highlight the sauce.
