Traditional Tomato Basil Sauce Made with Estate-Grown Italian Tomatoes
This sauce is Basilicata in a jar! The balanced sweet and acidic tomato passata is slowly cooked with fresh, aromatic basil and extra virgin olive oil to create a classic, simple sauce perfetto for pasta, pizza and more.
The farm's vine-ripe tomatoes are picked at the perfect point of ripeness and consistency to ensure unequaled color and flavor. The tomatoes are blanched for a few seconds to remove the peel, passed through a mill, sieved and then set on colanders to drain until they achieve just the right consistency.
How to use
Masseria Mirogallo's Tomato Sauce with Basil is the classic choice for a bowlful of spaghetti or your favorite cut of Rustichella d'Abruzzo pasta. It also makes a wonderful simple sauce for pizza, focaccia and bruschetta.
The simplicity of this sauce makes it a great base or addition for dishes like fish and seafood stew, Eggplant Parmigiana and Chicken Cacciatore.
About the producer
The Belfiore family farm, known as Masseria Mirogallo, sits on 70 acres of land in the southern Italian region of Basilicata. The family specializes in cultivating heirloom vegetables, from which they handcraft exceptional pantry preserves—bright tomato sauces, sun-dried tomatoes packed in extra virgin olive oil and hand-peeled artichoke hearts.
Everything Masseria Mirogallo puts in a jar—from vine-ripened tomatoes to sun-sweet peppers and artichokes—comes from their fields and is processed on-site, often mere minutes after being picked (which means you can open peak-season flavor with a simple twist of a lid).
