Erica’s Cento Tomato Recipe:

*I learned the red sauce recipe from Francis Ford Coppola when he was a house guest of ours. It is a simple red sauce using CENTO tomatoes. I have now added a few touches for my personal taste. You can find CENTO San Marzano Tomatoes in Oklahoma City at Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Homeland, and Culinary Kitchen on occasion. The Red Sauce is a simple marinara and can be used as a base for other marinara sauces that include vegetables or meat products! It works great on your pasta of choice, especially with take home pasta from your Cosabella Cooking Class.

3 tbsp imported extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp of fresh chopped garlic
1 tsp nutmeg
1 can CENTO Certified San Marzano Tomatoes, crushed
1 can whole CENTO Certified San Marzano Tomatoes
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Sea salt to taste
Fine black pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped basil leaves
Whole basil leaves and Parmesan for taste and garnish
