The best #Food ever: #Spaghetti al #Pomodoro

Sometimes you just want to go back to basics. In my case to my favourite food: “Spaghetti al Pomodoro” (Spaghetti Pasta with fresh Tomato Sauce).
Here is it, from ingredients:

San Marzano Tomatoes, Calabria’s Extra virgin olive oil, garlic, onion, fresh basil and Parmigiano cheese.

Just prepare the sauce in a pan with olive oil, garlic and onions (slowly adding the basil).

Cook at medium heat until it becomes a sort of tomato cream. Then add a spoon of red wine and a little of salt (I use Himalaya Pink Salt).

Boil the Pasta (De Cecco Spaghetti of course) for about 10 minutes. When spaghetti are ready, just add them into the pan with tomato sauce with Parmigiano cheese.
And thenit is done!

Garofalo’s Penne with fresh tomato sauce

Tonight I was in the mood for Pasta with homemade tomato sauce,
I prepared the tomato sauce with olive oil, garlic, fresh tomatoes, speck ham, parmisan and hemmentaler cheese on top. Ok also a spoon of Piedmont Dolcetto wine.

I tried semplina penne from Garofalo (first time tried this producer).
So I cook the penne in boiling water for about 7 minutes, then i elimated the water amd completed its cooking directly in the pan with the sauce.

Result was tasty… Very good!
