Pasta al Pomodoro


200 grams Pennette
250 grams canned or Fresh Pomodorini Datterini
Sprig of satureja and fresh oregano
1 clove Garlic
Olive oil, salt, pepper


Boil and cook pasta as per packet instructions. In the meantime clean garlic clove and drop in pasta water while waiting for the boil. In a frypan add the fresh (sliced halves) or canned datterini tomatoes, add sprigs of satureja and oregano, then add garlic (boiled for about 30 seconds in the pasta water before adding pasta!) then salt, pepper to taste. Allow to simmer for a few minutes (more if fresh tomatoes) then add olive oil and simmer a little bit more. When the color looks right and flavour is right, then add some boiling pasta water (about 1/2 cup) bring tomato sauce to boiling point, remove garlic and then add pasta. Stir a minute until pasta absorbs the sauce, then serve! Makes 2 hearty servings or 4 dinner servings.

Buon Appetito!
