Salsa di pomodori is Italian for “tomato sauce”. I've kept the Italian term because it's so different from what English-speaking people understand when they think of tomato sauce. It's one of the foundations of Italian cookery. This recipe comes from the German translation of Time-Life's “Die K├╝che in Italien”, originally published in 1968. I've modified for modern units of measurement.

This sauce is very similar to salsa pizzaiola, the traditional sauce for pizzas. It's quite possible to use this as a basis for salsa pizzaiola.
