This sauce is very little known and yet it is delicious with grilled vegetables, white fish, pasta and meat. It is native of Catalonia, and delicate flavor, so tend to like very much also to children. The original version, imply to make a sauce with crushed tomatoes, very chopped chives and a little garlic. FRY all is left to fire half an hour approximately until the sauce is well thick.
However one of my days of rush, I discovered that Aida leaves even tastier with a can of tomato sauce from the brand. They sell it in Mercadona and in almost every supermarket. It is worth to look for it because it is top quality, natural ingredients and very homemade taste. I hate since the tomato sauce. Anyone who knows me knows that never it, and that buy it is for my son that he loves it. However, I recognize that this sauce is delicious with this type of tomato "sauce".

When I do it I take and I do quantity. Then I keep it in cans of canned reused and keep it in the fridge. In this way I always have sauce available for any time!.
Use it with everything you feel like, especially with grilled vegetables, and already you can not go back to eat them without this sauce.
