crushed between your fingers prior to adding to the dish

In a large, deep sauté pan, cook the olive oil and the garlic over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add the onion. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the salami and the fresh herbs (except the 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley). Continue to sauté until onions are soft and the garlic is browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Season with pepper (the salami is salty—you will not need to add salt).
Add the red wine, stirring well to dislodge the brown bits at the bottom of the pan and reduce by half, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the tomato sauce and the Chicken Broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir the Romano cheese into the sauce.
