Chef’s Snow’s version of a classic Italian style sauce, made with local plum tomatoes, which can be used on pasta, pizza or any other Italian recipe calling for a red sauce or gravy.

1 28 ounce can whole peeled plum tomatoes, or fresh that have been peeled
1/4 cup good extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic sliced
2 sprigs rosemary chopped
2 sprigs thyme chopped
4-5 whole chives chopped
2-3 sprigs oregano chopped
salt and pepper
1. In a sauce pot, add oil over VERY low heat, then add the garlic and herbs.
2. Slowly simmer..should see a bit of bubbles..slower the better..you cant rush love making!!
3. After oil has infused for 10 minutes minimum, add tomatoes that have been pulsed 2 times in a blender or food processor.
4. Season with salt & pepper, add optional ingredients. Bring to boil, then shut off and remove from heat.
Chef’s Note: Do not simmer this sauce for over 20 minutes..you want to retain the “fresh” or “fresca” taste. Grandma will forgive you, I hope! 🙂 Also, check out our Northern Italian Seasoning or if you’re feeling lazy buy the best sauce in a bottle Chef Snow’s Thoughtful Harvest pasta sauce.[/private]
