Ingredients: tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil, basil, salt, sugar.
Rolando raves: "This sauce will bring out the child in everyone who tastes it! Great as a topping for bruschetta, as a sauce for grilled or poached fish, and the perfect base for making a Pizza Margherita."
This sauce is Basilicata in a jar! The balanced sweet and acidic tomato passata is slowly cooked with fresh, aromatic basil and extra virgin olive oil to create a classic, simple sauce that pairs perfectly with spaghetti.
At the Mirogallo family farm in Basilicata, sun-ripened heirloom tomatoes are picked at the perfect point of ripeness to ensure unequaled color and flavor. The tomatoes are blanched for a few seconds to remove the peel, passed through a mill, sieved and set in colanders to drain until they reach the right consistency.
Suggestions for use: Heat in a saucepan for at least 4 minutes. Drain pasta before it is al dente, mix with the sauce over high flame and serve immediately. To enjoy this superb sauce at its best, keep in the refrigerator after opening and consume within five days.
