Filetto di Pomodoro

sylvia bourque


This sauce is used in many recipes. One cup is equal to 2 points plus. This is the same sauce used on the chicken parmigiana burgers I also posted.

55 Min


2-28 oz
canned crushed tomatoes
3 clove
garlic, smashed
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1/2 large
onion finely chopped
1 c
carrots, finely chopped
1/2 c
fat free chicken stock
fresh basil


1Saute garlic in oil, add onions and carrots and saute on medium-low for about 2-3 minutes, until soft. Add tomatoes and chicken broth and simmer 45 minutes on low.
2Add fresh basil last 10 minutes (herbs will become bitter if cooked more than 20 minutes). Julia always adds herbs into the sauce near the end.
3Taste for acidity, if sauce is a bit tangy (acidic) then add 1 tbsp of sugar. For a calorie free way to cut the acidity in the sauce add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
