Favuzzi Sicilian Sauce
Our Sicilian-style sauce is a thick blend of crushed yellow and red bell peppers and tomatoes, complemented with chopped onion and eggplant. Its flavour is reminiscent of both ratatouille and caponata.
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. 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.
