Strained tomatoes, or passata in Italian, are a purée of cooked or raw tomatoes, depending on the brand. Thicker than tomato juice but more liquid than tomato sauce, it can be found at the grocery store, next to the canned tomatoes.



  1. In a large skillet over high heat, lightly brown the garlic, rosemary and bay leaf in the butter. Add the strained tomatoes and let simmer for 5 minutes or until the sauce develops an orange hue.
  2. Add the cream and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Off the heat, add the Parmesan and stir until the cheese has melted. Remove the rosemary and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. This sauce is delicious with Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi.
