Tomato Passata makes the perfect tomato base for a lot of dishes. It is basically salted, uncooked tomatoes that have been pureed (after being strained of their skins and seeds).
It differs from tomato paste, tomato puree and tomato sauce in that they have all been cooked and processed to varying degrees.
I use passata a lot because of its blank canvas versatility. I can build flavours into it to make pasta sauce. I can reduce it to make thicker tomato concoctions such as a sauce for Beef Parmigiana.
The list is endless. 🙂
