- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Finely chopped onions
- Crushed tomato
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 table spoon garlic
- 1 table spoon ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper
- 2 Bay leaves
- Finely chopped parsley
- Mushrooms (Optional)
- Olives (Optional)
- Red Wine (Optional)
Preparing the Sauce
Boil the tomatoes and crush half of them in a grinder.
Finely chop onions and garlic along with some green chili
Add onion and some chilies to a pan and cook until the onion is soft and caramelized. Once done, add crushed tomatoes and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.
Add the other boiled Tomatoes and crush them in the pan by hand. I like to leave behind some chunks of tomato in the sauce that can provide some tangy taste. Cook the mixture under cover until well done.
So as to give the sauce a sweeter taste, I would add some tomato ketchup for taste and bring it to simmer again. The sauce is ready
Once done well with the sauce, server it along with Spaghetti and / or Italian bread and / or use it over Pizza or with pasta
