Favuzzi Tomato Sauce Basil 480ml


The most popular of Favuzzi sauces: velvety crushed tomatoes are seasoned with fresh basil leaves for a delicious herbal flavour.

This basic Italian sauce is the perfect complement to all your favourite types of pasta: spaghetti, ravioli, gnocchi, cannelloni, etc. It is also delicious spooned over polpettes and arancini.

Authentically Italian pasta dishes are not served swimming in sauce. Average proportions are 375 mL (1 ½ cup) tomato sauce for 500 g (1 lb) pasta. Don't throw away all your pasta cooking water: it's a good idea to add a bit to your sauce. Mix in ¼ to ½ cup (or a ladleful) cooking water with the sauce before adding the pasta. The salted, starchy water will enhance flavours and thicken the sauce, helping it stick to the pasta.
