This delicious pomodoro sauce is a busy week night wonder. Made from scratch it only takes 20 minutes from start to finish and just a handful of basic ingredients. But it is so much better than the sauce from the jar, you can not even compare. Great for a quick stress free dinner that the whole family will love. This sauce is plentiful tasty and abundant in flavor.

The key ingredient is San Marzano tomatoes. San Marzano it a type of plum tomatoes. The flesh is much thicker with fewer seeds, and the taste is stronger, sweeter and less acidic. They are ideal for making tomato sauce. And since tomatoes are the stars of the sauce you have to use the best. The olive oil is unfused with crushed garlic giving it a subtle fragrant flavor that is not overwhelming and a perfect compliment to the tomatoes. Aromatic basil brings in an unbeatable freshness. And just a touch of red pepper flakes adds a slight spicy bite. The sauce is simmered for 20 minutes and then blended in a food processor until silky smooth. The balance of flavors and textures is simply perfect.

I am addicted to the convenience of this sauce and love the simplicity of this Pomodoro sauce recipe.

Rich and luxurious this Pomodoro sauce rocks. It looks so appetizing when served on top of a bed of freshly cooked pasta, and almost too pretty to eat. Serve it with a sprinkle of freshly parmesan cheese for a delicious no fuss meal and is guaranteed to be a huge hit.
