Homemade Sun-dried Tomato Sauce by Perché Ci Credo
( / )
This hearty sun-dried tomato sauce is a farmhouse favorite in Salento, made from fresh Roma tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, and extra virgin olive oil. Southern Italian farmers referred to the recipe as "poor man's ragú," as the umami-rich sundried tomatoes took the place of meat, adding flavor and consistency to this popular sauce. Pair this sauce with a simple, short-cut pasta and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil for a complete weeknight meal. Perché ci credo translates to "because I believe in it" and expresses founder Enrico de lorenzo's passion for creating delicious, ready-to-eat, Italian foods using fresh, simple ingredients. Their artisanal sauces and condiments encapsulate the fresh and intense flavors of Salento, Puglia, with absolutely no artificial preservatives, additives, colorings, or added sugar.
