SAN MARZANO TOMATO SAUCE WITH LINGUINE, FRESH RICOTTA & BASIL

San Marzano tomatoes are the best plum tomatoes in the world. The only way to make good tomato sauce is with quality tomatoes, so if you don’t have a Nonna that grows them and picks these tomatoes by hand (I’m lucky I love her!!) then definitely buy San Marzano tomatoes to make your sauce. You’ll know why when you taste it, the sauce is just sexy.

What You’ll Need:

  • Jar of San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Tomato Paste
  • Garlic
  • Splash of white wine (optional)
  • Olive Oil
  • Basil

Method:

  1. Use a fairly large saucepan, heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in the pot and sautee your garlic until golden (not brown!) If your garlic turns brown, start over. Add a splash of white wine if you’d like.
  2. Remove from heat. Pour your crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1 bay leaf and simmer for 1 hour -90 mins. If your sauce is thin, feel free to ad tablespoons of tomato paste at a time.
  3. Add fresh basil to your sauce!
