SWEET AND DELICATE TOMATO SAUCE
1/3 cup Queen Creek Olive Mill Delicate EVOO
1 medium carrot, diced small
1 medium sweet onion, diced small
1 small tender celery rib, diced small
6 cloves garlic, minced
4-5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
2-3 sprigs of Italian parsley chopped
1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2 cup Zinfandel or Cabernet
1 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes (preferably San Marzano or comparable)
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
This simple, delicate and aromatic tomato sauce is a family favorite. Use it as a basic sauce to toss with pasta, fold into a risotto, when layering lasagna or anywhere a meatless sauce is required. Carrots provide the right amount of sweetness to this incredible tomato sauce.
Heat Delicate EVOO in a saucepan, add diced vegetables and season with a pinch of salt and pepper and sauté over medium heat until caramelized, about 10 minutes.
Add garlic and herbs and cook for 2 minutes.
Add wine and crushed tomatoes and let simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Use a stick blender if you prefer a smooth sauce.
Season with salt and pepper.
