Tomato & sauce





Do you know that the large quantity of lycopene contained in tomato is released  while cooking it ?

This is one of the secrets of Mediterranean  diet : a large use of tomato and fresh tomato sauce as one of the best antioxidant!

Here in Sicily we ( most of us)  still make "i buttigghie ri sarsa"..fresh tomato sauce bottled for the winter season. I rarely buy tomato sauce bottles at the supermarket.

 My next "Tomato-sauce day" I will tell and show you how to make them!
