Pomodoro Sauce (Sugo di Pomodoro)
Pomodoro Sauce is a simple, delicious Italian sauce made from fresh tomatoes, basil and garlic. We went all the way to Italy to learn this recipe and now we are sharing it with YOU!
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds or until garlic barely begins to become golden brown.
Carefully add whole tomatoes and a little salt and lower the heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes (or longer). When tomatoes are soft, use an immersion blender to blend tomatoes until smooth.
Tear basil into smaller pieces and add to the sauce. Add more salt to taste. You want to add salt until it balances out the bright, acidic flavor of the tomatoes.
Remove from heat and toss with your favorite pasta.
