Tasty, fragrant, delicious and nutritious, tomato sauce originated in Palermo but is one of the main condiments in Sicilian cuisine and, depending on the place, there are different variations of it. Palermo-style tomato sauce is perfect for pasta cà sarsa e mulinciane fritte (pasta with sauce and fried eggplant).

The sour flavor of the tomato pairs perfectly with the aromatic taste of basil making this sauce just extraordinary!
