Easy tomato sauce
Sugo di pomodoro
This tasty and very easy tomato sauce is an excellent, fast topping for Italian pasta. It only takes 5 minutes of preparing, and it’s ready in 30 minutes. It’s fresh, tasty and a far cry from canned or processed tomato sauces. You can use it as is for a fast Italian pasta-dinner, or you can enrich it with other ingredients to make a large variety of sauces (e.g. tuna sauce, vegetable sauces).
This easy tomato sauce is an excellent topping for any kind of Italian pasta by itself. You can also enrich it with almost anything you like, and you get your own, Italian pasta dinner. Once it’s ready, add some olives, canned tuna, top it with some grated parmiggiano reggiano, and you get an amazing pasta dish in no time. The best of all: no one will tell you it took only a few minutes to prepare.
As you can see in the second picture below, I served it on pipette rigate, adding some olives, blue cheese and parmiggiano reggiano.
My advise is to make a large quantity of this easy tomato sauce, and store it in your freezer in small containers. This way you have fresh pasta dinner in 10 minutes, and I guarantee you it’s much better than any kind of processed food. This is the traditional Italian way to make it, store a large quantity in the freezer and use it every night for their famous “primi piatti” pasta dishes.
