Recipes for San Marzano Tomatoes
By Nicholas Soccodato
Ingredients: Extra virgin olive oil, garlic (2 cloves or spicy in a jar marinated in sunflower seed oil), onion, white cooking wine, salt, basil, passata di pomodoro in bottle (mashed tomatoes), 680g and pomodorini (cherry tomatoes) in 14 oz. can.
Cooking time: 20 minutes. Serves 4-6 people for 1lb. of pasta.
Use La Bella San Marzano brand tomatoes
"Cilento" extra virgin olive oil and aglio al peperoncino (spicy garlic in sunflower seed oil) available in a jar.
Pour 2 spoons of extra virgin olive oil into a 10 inch frying pan. Add chopped onion as well as 2 chopped cloves of garlic and fry them until bronzed then pour a 680g passata di pomodoro from the bottle (mashed tomatoes) mixing with pomodorini slowly cook and stir for 20 minutes. During the final five minutes while stirring squeeze the cherry tomatoes gently. Add a touch of white wine, a touch of salt and 2 basil leaves in small pieces. I prefer Capellini spaghetti served individually in a dish topping it with 1 ½ scoops of sauce and sprinkle romano or reggiano cheese. Salute e lunga vita!
For a deluxe treat, during the last 3 minutes add 4 slightly cooked lobster tail meat.
*Excellent for pizza, fish or meat alla pizzaiola.*
