Our Sicilian-style sauce is a thick blend of crushed yellow and red bell peppers and tomatoes, complemented with chopped onion and eggplant. Its flavor is reminiscent of both ratatouille and caponata.
Uses; Our Sicilian tomato sauce is the ideal companion for another regional specialty: the fried rice balls known as arancini. Simply add ground meat and green peas to turn the sauce into the famous Sicilian rag, delicious in lasagna or with cannelloni. Or why not try a Basque chicken recipe for a change? Authentically Italian pasta dishes are not served swimming in sauce.
Average proportions are 375 ml (1 cup) of tomato sauce for 500 g (1 lb) of 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.
