Normally the typical Pomodoro sauce is made with grated tomatoes, olive oil, basil and salt. I prefer to make it with whole tomatoes, because I don’t like the sauce to be so absolutely homogeneous, but you choose how you prefer it. Some also include a bit of chopped onion, pepper, a bit of cayenne and, when serving the pasta, put a bit of parmesan on top. Everything is tasty, but I’ve given you the purest and most classic recipe, the super red one.

 

Buen provecho!
