Tomato Sauce

 

Tomato sauce (sugo al pomodoro) is an Italian classic and there is nothing better than to prepare it yourself (the one that you buy at the supermarket is miles away from matching this homemade sauce). The recipe is easy, the ingredients are extremely easy to find and it is also very cheap to make.

Ingredients:

  • 800 ml Peeled Tomatoes
  • 40 grams Onion (finely chopped) or 2 gloves of garlic
  • 40 ml Extra virgin olive oil (plus splash to complete the sauce at the end)
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • Few basil leaves
  • Salt for seasoning
  • A sprinkle of love

Method:

  • Chop the onion; put the oil in a sauce pan. Heat the oil and then add the onions.
  • Sweat off the onion over medium heat, until it colors {2/3 minutes}
  • Add the tomatoes, stir well.
  • Cover the pan, lower the heat and let it cook for 10 minutes, after that add the sugar! Give it a good stir and let it cook for 20/30 minutes and the sauce is thick.
  • 10 minutes before to finish put the salt, amount that you like and at the end the basil.
  • Buon Appetito
