Aimee – Zesty Marinara Dip: Method
- In a small sauce pot, warm the olive oil over medium-low heat. Peel and mince the garlic. Add the garlic to the oil and stir with a wooden spoon. Be careful not to brown the garlic; we want it to infuse the oil.
- Add 2 tablespoons of Mutti Polpa to the hot oil and stir. Let it cook for a minute; the olive oil will take on a golden colour. This sofrito will give the sauce a boost of flavour as the tomato sauce caramelizes in the garlic oil.
- Add remaining tomato purée (save and wash the can!) as well as salt, pepper and chili flakes. Stir well. Simmer on medium low heat for at 15 minutes. Sauce will thicken slightly.
- Stir in grated Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh basil. Cook for an additional minute.Taste and adjust salt, if desired. Serve warm with a side of breadsticks in your repurposed Mutti can.
