Wash the tripe, dry and cut it into stripes.

Brown the minced celery, carrot and onion with gr 20of butter and oil with some leaves of basil and a clove of garlic.

Use a casserole, of terracotta if possible.

Cook at low heat, pour a glass of wine and let it evaporate, then add the tripe, salt and pepper.

Peel the tomatoes, removing their seeds, cut them into cubes and add them to the tripe.

Continue cooking at low heat, gently pouring about half a liter of hot broth.
