4) Fresh Sauce with Ravioli

In Italian, it’s called Salsa Fresca, which means Fresh Sauce. It’s very easy to make, and quick as well. You can use either fresh tomatoes or a large can of crushed tomatoes. If you do use canned tomatoes, choose a good brand with nothing extra added. You want the fresh taste of sweet tomatoes, not a tart canned flavor. Start by sautéing a few cloves of garlic and a little finely chopped onion in some olive oil. Add the tomatoes with basil, parsley, salt, and pepper and just a small pinch of oregano, and a dash of sugar, which helps reduce the acidity. While the sauce is sautéing, cook the ravioli. The entire dish only takes about 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can substitute a vegetable pasta, tortellini, or any pasta of your choice. Serve hot with some freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese.
