Move over, marinara: pomodoro sauce is here for your summer pasta dinner parties. This tangy tomato sauce was made to let its ingredients shine: fresh picked basil leaves, ripe tomatoes, fragrant cloves of garlic, and extra-virgin olive oil.

Chef Thomas Keller, founder of Michelin star winning restaurants The French Laundry, Per Se, and Bouchon, learned this recipe’s box grater technique for tomatoes from Chef José Andrés. Chef Keller’s quick pomodoro sauce with fresh herbs is perfect with frozen or fresh homemade gnocchi for a beautiful and convenient meal.
