1 tbsp chopped garlic
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
5 lbs of tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 tsp salt
1 dozen hazelnuts, skinned
1 bay leaf
1 sprig of parsley
1/2 cup of wine or chicken stock


Saute chopped onion and garlic until the onion is softened. Add the tomatoes and fry on high heat for a few minutes. Add the salt, bay leaf, parsley and liquid. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 - 20 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced. Put the sauce into a blender with the hazelnuts, and puree until smooth.

Add the sofrito to your meat, fish, or chicken five minutes before it is finished. This will impart the delicious flavors of this sauce to your main course.
