Pasta Al’Pomodoro – A fresh pasta sauce straight from Italy.
8 large Roma tomatoes, diced
1 large Spanish onion
1 clove of garlic, crushed
A teaspoon of salt to taste
Tbsp Olive Oil
Fresh basil for garnish.
Place the oil, garlic and onion on medium heat and sauté until onion is clear.
Add tomatoes, already diced and salted, then allow to cook on medium until a sauce begins to form. Turn heat down, cover and simmer for 20 mins, stirring regularly. Occasionally add a few tablespoons of water if the sauce becomes too thick.
For taste you can add chilli, bacon or mushrooms but this makes a great starting base and is surprisingly tasty as it is.
Cook your favourite pasta in a separate pot and stir into sauce when ready. Garnish with fresh basil and parmesan cheese.
