(You'll need your apron for this.)
This is how 2 tomatoes, a handful of basil, 2 garlic cloves, extra-virgin olive oil, and a little seasoning will change your life. Ammoglio is a marinade of the gods ... whatever it touches turns delicious. You can use it on pasta, but use it especially on grilled meats and (any kind of) seafood.
Smash the garlic with 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt until almost frothy. add the handful of basil and crush with mortar. add the chopped tomato and some fresh pepper, and slowly pound the tomatoes until you have a thick,liquidy mixture with pieces of tomato. Add a good lug of olive oil and stir.
