Looking For Authentic Pomodoro Sauce Recipe

Moose | Nov 19, 2013 11:25 AM

I'm looking for an authentic pomodoro sauce recipe, the kind served with pasta, usually penne pomodoro y basilico.

The version I'm looking for is usually found at better Italian restaurants, and is a deep orange color. The attached photo is a good example of how it looks.

It's rich, has a lot of depth, and packed full of flavor. I suspect the color is possibly due to added cream, but even if it is, it's NOT a pink sauce. Im also guessing the sauce is cooked for a good amount of time, perhaps an hour or more.

The pomodoro sauces I did dig up from Google searches were either mislabeled Marinara sauce (Marinara is NOT Pomodoro sauce) or just didn't add up in terms of what I'm looking for.

Any guidance would be appreciated!
