  • 3. Wash the tomatoes, remove the stem and cut into medium-sized cubes. At will, peel can be removed from vegetables beforehand, by making a cross cut on them and lowering vegetables for a few seconds in boiling water. Add the ground tomatoes to the rest of the vegetables. Stir and continue to fry the ingredients together for a few more minutes.
  • 4. At the end of the preparation let’s add salt, black ground pepper, dried Italian herbs and finely chopped dill and parsley to the vegetable mixture.
