Do you like Italian cuisine? Maybe you are not aware, but Pomodoro is the base of Italian cooking. What is it? In a nutshell, it is a tomato-based pasta sauce that is usually made with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, onion, and fresh basil. And did you know that the word ‘Pomodoro’ means ‘golden apple’? Why? Because this pasta sauce was originally made with tomatoes that resemble the color (pale yellow) of the local apples…
