The origins of Shrimp and Grits can be traced to Africa, and in the United States, South Carolina has become its historical home. Our version uses our own Colavita olive oil and diced tomatoes for a full, savory flavor.MamaMiaMangia’s Sugo al PomodoroThis recipe was submitted by Elena Davis of MamaMiaMangia for the My Colavita Meal challenge. Notes from the author below.
This is a go-to, easy, authentic, and flavorful tomato sauce recipe you will love! I make this weekly and store it in a mason jar in the fridge and use it for an easy lunch with pasta or add to any recipe that calls for tomato sauce. It also freezes great. I receive countless compliments on the fresh, flavorful and light taste of this simple authentic recipe. Most canned pasta sauces are filled with a dozen ingredients and spices. The overdone sauce complicates the pure sweet flavor of the tomato itself. The key is using the right kind of canned tomatoes and good quality olive oil (Colavita) as a base. Italian recipes are mostly simple. They typically highlight one main ingredient with a few other spices and sub ingredients (I just made up that term) to create just the right flavor combinations. Simple is best!
