Serve this tomato-based Italian salsa with Slow-Roasted Balsamic-Glazed Duck with Roasted Vegetables from chef April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig and The John Dory Oyster Bar.
Place tomatoes in a bowl and, using your hand, gently break them up; set aside.
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, cinnamon, and chile; cook, stirring, until garlic is golden. Add tomatoes and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat and cook until slightly thickened, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and discard; serve salsa rossa with roasted vegetables.
