Ingredients

  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced (or sub 1/2 onion)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 28oz can San Marzano whole tomatoes
  • 1 oz Parmesan rind (amount approximate) (optional, but recommended)

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.  Add mustard seeds, and heat until they begin to pop.
