Classic Tomato Sauce
Classic Tomato Sauce
 (Sugo di Pomodoro)
 
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 lb tomatoes
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
One onion
Salt
Basil

Directions:
 
Peel and chop the tomatoes.
 
Peel and finely chop the onion.
 
Put the olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion.
 
Cook for about five minutes, add the chopped tomatoes and a pinch or two of salt.
Increase the heat and cook for another ten minutes.
 
When you have removed the sauce from the heat, add the fresh basil leaves.
 
Note: This sauce is delicious in the summer time when plump, delicious tomatoes are readily available and is suitable for all kinds of pasta. Remember to provide grated Parmigiano cheese for those who wish.
 
This sauce can also be used as a dressing for cold pasta. In this case try adding some chopped, diced mozzarella to the cold sauce; this lends a wonderfully fresh, tangy flavor to the dish.
 
That's it!
