Salsa di pomodoro

Ingredients:

1 white onion, chopped

4 garlic cloves, chopped

12 vine-ripe red tomatoes

fresh basil, to taste

4 tbsp (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil

coarse sea salt, to taste

Instructions:

In a skillet over high heat, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes and salt, reduce heat, and cook for 15 minutes. Pass sauce through a food mill until smooth. Place sauce in pot and cook for 5 more minutes. Top with fresh basil.

Tips:

Having a perfect tomato sauce recipe is crucial to Italian cooking. It is one of the primary building blocks to numerous other sauces. Using vine-ripe tomatoes makes this sauce bright and sweet. Orange tomatoes are another option as they are minimally acidic. Be sure to add the basil at the last minute, otherwise it will blacken.
