Tomato sauce: homemade is best

The prime ingredient for spaghetti with tomato sauce is “passata”, i.e. tomato purée: of course you can find it off the shelf, but it will be much tastier if you prepare it at home following a few simple steps.
If you decide to make your own delicious tomato passata here is what you need to do:
  • Buy some San Marzano tomatoes
  • Stem them, then thoroughly wash and dry them
  • Cut the tomatoes in half and remove their seeds
  • Place them in a large saucepan and let them cook over low heat
  • Stir until tender.
At this point, all you have to do is blend the sauce and let it thicken a few minutes on the fire. Your passata is ready!
The sweet and delicate flavor of San Marzano tomatoes, added to that of garlic sautéed in Il Casolare Farchioni extra virgin olive oil, balanced and pleasantly fruity, will create a truly unique combination.

Spaghetti with tomato sauce: cook it al dente!

Nobody likes overcooked pasta, and our spaghetti must be al dente, especially because once removed from the heat it will be stir-fried in the sauce.
Here are some cooking tips:
  • Spaghetti should be cooked in a large, tall pot
  • Consider at least 1 liter of water for every pound of spaghetti
  • When water boils, place a bunch of spaghetti in the center of the pot and twist it slightly, so as to allow it to open in a radial pattern.
  • Remove the spaghetti from heat about 2 minutes before the end of cooking time.
  • Cooking will be completed in the pan along with the sauce.
