Basil and Pecorino sauce

480ml - FA140

$10.99

Our most popular sauce with delicious Pecorino cheese! Full of character, this hard, crumbly Italian cheese offers tangy tones of sweet spice and seared butter. At first glance, Pecorino may seem similar to Parmesan, but it is far from identical. Pecorino is made from sheep's milk cheese as opposed to Parmesan which is made from cow's milk, giving it a grassier, earthier flavor.

Uses

This basic Italian sauce is the perfect complement to all your favourite types of pasta: spaghetti, ravioli, gnocchi, cannelloni, etc. It is also delicious spooned over polpettes and arancini. Authentically Italian pasta dishes are not served swimming in sauce. Average proportions are 375 mL (1 ½ cup) tomato sauce for 500 g (1 lb) pasta. Don't throw away all your pasta cooking water: it's a good idea to add a bit to your sauce. Mix in ¼ to ½ cup (or a ladleful) cooking water with the sauce before adding the pasta. The salted, starchy water will enhance flavours and thicken the sauce, helping it stick to the pasta.

Distinctives attributes

Nothing rivals with the taste of Italian tomatoes ripened under the Mediterranean sun and seasoned with fresh, locally grown aromatics. If our sauces have a velvety texture, comparable to a homemade sauce, it is partly because they are prepared in small batches and cooked over an open flame, the same technique traditionally used by Italian mammas, allowing the water to evaporate gradually.
