Test Kitchen Tip

With their sun-ripened taste and firm pulp, San Marzano plum tomatoes are touted as the best for making sauces.


Purée tomatoes in a food processor.

Cook pancetta in oil in a sauté pan until crisp; transfer to a papertowel-lined plate. Reserve 2 Tbsp. drippings.

Add onions to drippings; sweat over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and pepper flakes; cook 1 minute. Stir in puréed tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook sauce until thickened, 10 minutes; stir in pancetta, then season with salt and pepper.

Garnish sauce with pecorino, parsley, and reserved pancetta.
