How to Make TOMATO SAUCE


 

Frank Sinatra’s Pasta Sauce Recipe


(as told to Sid Mark on the 7/4/86 “Sounds of Sinatra” program)

2 tablespoons light Olive Oil
3 whole cloves garlic (pierced w/fork)
2 - 28 ounce Cans San Marzano Tomatoes
Salt, Pepper, Oregano to taste
10 fresh Basil leaves
1 Bay Leaf
1 tablespoon finely chopped Parsley (if desired)

  Quoting Mr. S: (Fragmented sentences and all.)


FRANK SINATRA tells Sid Mark, step-by-step HOW He Makes TOMATO SAUCE



“You begin with a skillet and you use a light kind of olive oil and put in about 2 tbsp. full and put in 3 whole cloves of garlic. I usually puncture the cloves with a fork so it will exude the flavor I want. When the garlic is tanned or light brown take it out of the oil and throw it away. Keep the oil.

For 4 people you can take 2 cans of the oval shaped tomato and you put each can in a blender and count about a “slow four” to grind it up and put it in a saucepan…do that with both cans. Add a pinch of salt and a little bit of black pepper and little bit of oregano…maybe ½ tsp. full. Add the oil. I used to watch my dad do it. He’d just take his fingers and he’d take so much and throw it in the pot. And you let it simmer…

Now…VERY IMPORTANT because this is what you don’t find in restaurants because they can’t take the time to do it. You take a good sized tsbp. And whatever oil or foreign matter that comes to the top; just keep skimming it until you have a pure red sauce. Low flame and cook for about ½ hr. and just let it sit there until you are ready to turn on your water for your pasta.

You want to put a couple of bay leaves and fresh basil is wonderful…at the last minute.

So you’ve got in the sauce olive oil, garlic, pepper, salt, oregano, a couple of basil leaves and, if you wish, a teaspoon -tablespoon. Of finely chopped parsley and that’s the way to make a simple pasta sauce.”

  Frank Sinatra, both the greatest singer and greatest entertainer of the 20th Century. No question. Sinatra was a legendary icon whose star still shines bright. He was a musical icon, celebrity, international personality, and to millions of Italian-Americans he was our own, a paisan. Frank was an Italian-American whose ancestry is from Genoa on his mother's side of the family and Sicilian on his father's side. And being Italian, Frank loved the food he grew up with, Dolly made a mean Marianara Sauce as well as Meatballs and the all-time Italian-American favorite Sunday Sauce (aka Gravy). Frank loved the food of his childhood; the Spaghetti & Meatballs, Stuffed Artichokes, Pasta Fazool, Frittata, Eggplant Parmigiana and all the usual suspects of the Italian-American table. It's a well known fact that Frank's favorite restaurant was Patsy's on 56th Street in New York ... When Frank went to Patsy's his favorite dishes were Calms Posillipo and Veal Milanese with a nice plate of Spaghetti Pomodoro in-between, and maybe a slice of Cheesecake to finish if Frank was in the mood.
