Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 1/2 loaf dry bread
  • 750 ml tomato paste
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, crushed and finely chopped, more if you like it
  • Oil
  • handful of well ripped basil leaves
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Soak the bread in water for a short time, so that you can crush it with your hands. It should not be soaked. Fry the garlic in a large frying pan with oil until it begins to change color.
  2. Add the tomato puree and salt and cook over medium heat until it gets to a boil.
  3. Add pieces of bread in, none smaller than a walnut, after wringing and continue to mix it with the tomato, until it has become completely red.
  4. At this point the tomato should still have a fresh aroma.
  5. Remove from heat and serve hot in a bowl, seasoned with a drizzle of olive oil, pepper and a basil leaf.
