Ortolana is a sauce base originating from Campania where farmers uses up whatever summer vegetables that´s left from their garden to concoct up this pasta sauce. The cooking method is apparently very straightforward where the sauteeing sequence starts which whatever which takes the longest to cook. What you see here are ready made. I was curious of how it would taste, grabbed a packet and I am impressed. Hubby liked it too. I have mine serve with extra portion of anchovies in olive oil for that extra kick.
