The Italian tomato sauce/ La salsa di pomodoro italiana August 22, 2009

Filed under: Typical activities,Typical products — Gina @ 11:40 pm

Nella nostra regione, come in molte altre zone dell’Italia, le donne sono, in questo periodo dell’anno, impegnate a preparare e conservare la salsa di pomodoro, ingrediente base per la preparazione del sugo usato per condire il nostro piatto nazionale: la pasta asciutta. Chi vive in piccoli paesi come il nostro o  in campagna ed ha la fortuna di avere un orto, usa pomodori di propria produzione, chi no, ne trova in grande quantità dal fruttivendolo.

In our region, as in many other areas of Italy, women, are in this period of the year, busy to prepare and preserve the tomato sauce, basic ingredient to prepare the sauce we use to season our national dish: the pasta. Who lives in little towns like ours or in the country and has the luck to have a kitchen garden, uses own production tomatoes, who not, finds them in big quantity at the greengrocer’s.

Ecco come si prepara nel nostro paese/ Here’s how they prepare it in our town:
