Basil Marinara Sauce
Originally built in 1388, the idyllic Monastery of Montebello has long served as an emblem of agriculture in northern Italy. This is a region prized for its produce, a place where organic tomatoes go from the vine to the jar within hours of ripening. Lightly cooked with extra virgin olive oil, basil and a soffritto of onions, carrots and celery, these tomatoes create a simply delicious sauce that’s smooth, naturally sweet and perfectly seasoned. Buon appetito!
