tomato, garlic and basil sauce

Tomato Sauce  Close- Up

The classic salsa pomodoro made in late summer throughout Italy that causes village streets to run bright red with tomato juice: tomatoes, garlic and basil are cooked down, sieved, and then olive oil and salt added. The thick sauce is then bottled or canned.
