 Tomato Sauce Recipe

Tomato Sauce Recipe

I have tried more tomato sauce recipes than I care to think about, some with great success, some not so. Working in Italy a few years ago I came across a recipe which intrigued me; the sauce was not only packed with lovely vegetables to create a great flavor, it was cooked in a very particular way. The ingredients for the sauce are layered in a specific order, then cooked without any stirring, simply a shake of the pan from time to time. The result, a super-tasty sauce where all the ingredients remain distinct yet are wrapped together with a strong tomato undertone.

The sauce with slight adaptations has become my favorite sauce of all time. The bold flavor makes it a great sauce for many recipes. The tomato sauce makes not only a fab sauce for pasta, with stock it becomes a great soup, passed through a sieve becomes a fine sauce to serve with fish, a base for quiches and with the addition of a few spices and a little vinegar and a quick boil, a great ketchup.

The sauce is perfect to use up a glut of fresh tomatoes, but if you are stuck then use tinned which also work well.

This cant be the best sauce evr its made with ground beef which we all know has no flavor at all to make grrat sauce u should use meats like pork or lamb or just the bones and some salt pork which has fat that will add flavor!

The person berating the meat in this sauce needs to go back and read the recipe, this is a tomato sauce recipe, not a meat sauce….duh.
