Made with slow-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth tomatoes, this Tuscan-style sauce also features a hint of caramelized red pepper and a touch of garlic. It could be described as the most "classic" Italian sauce, since all its aromatic notes play up the taste of fresh tomatoes in perfect harmony. This classic tomato sauce is a must-have for all your pasta dishes. It can also be used as an ingredient in pappa al pomodoro, a traditional Tuscan soup made with stale bread, which is just as good served hot, cold or at room temperature.
Nothing rivals with the taste of Italian tomatoes ripened under the Mediterranean sun and seasoned with fresh, locally grown aromatics. If Favuzzi sauces have a velvety texture, comparable to a homemade sauce, it is partly because they are prepared in small batches and cooked over an open flame, the same technique traditionally used by Italian mammas, allowing the water to evaporate gradually.
