Tasty Tomato Sauce - Rossa di Gusto
To make a topping for ½ kg of pasta:
- 20 cherry tomatoes
- 5 sun-dried tomatoes in oil
- 5 leaves of basil
- 50 g of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
- 50 g of mature pecorino cheese
- 5 g of dried oregano
- a pinch of salt and pepper
- 5 finely chopped parsley leaves
- ½ clove of garlic, finely chopped
- extra virgin olive oil
Wash and dry the cherry tomatoes and cut them into eighths, then leave them to stand for half an hour in a colander with a sachet of sugar, which will help to remove the acidity.
Cut the sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces with kitchen scissors. Wash the basil leaves, dry them and tear them up by hand.
Slice the cheese into flakes with a potato peeler.
Mix the garlic, parsley and fresh and dried tomatoes in a bowl, add the cheese and mix again, then complete with the oil, salt, pepper, oregano and basil.
This easy, light, delicious Tasty Tomato Sauce is also ideal on cold pasta. Use short pasta shapes such as "fusilli" spirals or "penne" macaroni and serve at room temperature or after a few hours in the refrigerator.
