Filetto Di Pomodoro
1 jar Preserved Summer Tomatoes with Basil
1 small red onion (minced)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup warm water
1 tsp dried oregano
Sea salt (to taste)
1 lb of fusilli pasta (or your personal favorite)
In a heavy 4 qt. pot, heat the EVOO and saute the red onion until well caramelized (about 7 minutes). Add garlic and saute for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the whole jar of Summer Tomatoes & Basil and mix well. Crush the tomatoes with a potato masher or wooden spoon. Add 1/2 cup warm water, the oregano and sea salt. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring to boil a large pot of well salted water. Add your pasta and cook according to the instructions on the package. Ideally, until al dente! Drain pasta and add to the pot of sauce and mix well over a low flame. Top with freshly grated cheese and serve. Buon appetito!
