Italian fresh tomato sauce

The fresh tomato sauce with basil is the Mediterranean condiment par excellence.Simple and tasty, better if done in summer, when tomatoes are tasty and fragrant. To prepare the tomato sauce you can buy the cherry tomatoes , or San Marzano tomatoes. It’s very important to choose the freshest ripe tomatoes, but firm and sound.
Check them one by one, remove the stalks and wash them very well, then dry them. Cut each tomato in half eliminating the green part of the stalks and the seeds.
Put the tomatoes in a steel sauce pan than put it on low heat covered; cook the tomatoes, turning occasionally, until they are mushy. Then put a masher on a bowl and mash all tomatoes and put the sauce on the fire again, add salt and oil
 and let it thicken until desired density. Then remove the pot from the stove, add the basil to the sauce.
the phase 2 will soon be available on the book "the secret of Italian cooking" in September on amazon.
