Passata is just a fresh tomato purée that is sterilised and bottled. Traditionally passata is made right at the end of summer, when there’s a glut of ripe, juicy tomatoes, and it’s put into bottles so you don’t have to use electricity to keep it frozen all year. You pull out a bottle mid-winter and get a flash of summer warmth in any recipe you cook. If you're Italian, you are probably very familiar with passata or with the ritual of bottling the purée for a rainy day. Just as well there is ready-bottled passata on sale at our local supermarket!

  3. I've never heard of this - I wonder if it's available in the US?
    Thanks for sharing at

  4. Passata is a mainstay of Italian cooking. Onions, olive oil, olives and capers will give you a nice puttanesca (add a bit of red wine too)
