Total time: 15 minutes
In a large skillet over medium-low heat, warm tomato sauce. Once bubbling, season with salt and pepper and stir in basil and mozzarella. Cover and heat until cheese is partially melted (with some stringy pieces), about 8 minutes.

Salsa Di Pomodoro
Makes 3 cups
In a large saucepan, combine olive oil and onions and sauté over medium heat until onions are transparent, 12 to 15 minutes. Add tomato puree and basil and reduce heat to bring to a low simmer. Cook until sauce has reduced by a third, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and discard basil sprigs and season with sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste. Use immediately or reheat before serving. Sauce will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
