Passata di Pomodori or Strained tomatoes are Fresh tomatoes, picked at the perfect moment of ripeness from Masseria Mirogallo's own fields. They are blanched in boiling water, hand-peeled, and passed through a sieve. Full-bodied and aromatic, these strained tomatoes are the perfect base for delicious sauces. And thanks to the care that goes into the jar, these tomatoes save you considerable time in the kitchen.
Use passata the way the Italians do, the simplest way of all, cooked as a sauce with onion or garlic and basil.
