How to Make TOMATO SAUCE

Recipes

 

Frank Sinatra’s Pasta Sauce Recipe

(as told to Sid Mark on the 7/4/86 “Sounds of Sinatra” program)

2 tbsp. light olive oil
3 whole cloves garlic (pierced w/fork)
2 cans oval “Italian type” tomatoes
Salt, pepper, oregano to taste
Basil, bay leaves, 1 tsp. finely chopped parsley (if desired)

Quoting Mr. S: (Fragmented sentences and all.)

FRANK SINATRA tells Sid Mark, step-by-step HOW He Makes TOMATO SAUCE

“You begin with a skillet and you use a light kind of olive oil and put in about 2 tbsp. full and put in 3 whole cloves of garlic. I usually puncture the cloves with a fork so it will exude the flavor I want. When the garlic is tanned or light brown take it out of the oil and throw it away. Keep the oil.”

“For 4 people you can take 2 cans of the oval shaped tomato and you put each can in a blender and count about a “slow four” to grind it up and put it in a saucepan…do that with both cans. Add a pinch of salt and a little bit of black pepper and little bit of oregano…maybe ½ tsp. full. Add the oil. I used to watch my dad do it. He’d just take his fingers and he’d take so much and throw it in the pot. And you let it simmer.” …

“Now…VERY IMPORTANT because this is what you don’t find in restaurants because they can’t take the time to do it. You take a good sized tsbp. And whatever oil or foreign matter that comes to the top; just keep skimming it until you have a pure red sauce. Low flame and cook for about ½ hr. and just let it sit there until you are ready to turn on your water for your pasta.”

“You want to put a couple of bay leaves and fresh basil is wonderful…at the last minute.”

“So you’ve got in the sauce olive oil, garlic, pepper, salt, oregano, a couple of basil leaves and, if you wish, a teaspoon – tablespoon. Of finely chopped parsley and that’s the way to make a simple pasta sauce.”

“Basta!”
