An unforgettable pasta!
Making a pasta is one thing. But making a pasta for your friends and loved ones who will bag you for more please, is just a whole different story! For some reason, I thought this pasta was one of my first posts, but stupid me, that was a totally different one! (It was the penne with rosemary-tomato pesto, which is good too, by the way!) How could I withhold you of this awesome, most simple recipe with the great WOW effect, it always gives!
The recipe originally came from Tessa Kiros. It was a pre-post in a magazine from her first book ‘Twelve’, she was about to publish herself. (It became such a hit, many books followed).
It was years ago when I first made it, and never forgot about the recipe since. But, to be honest, I have made it so many times, I’m not really sure my recipe is still the same it ones was supposed to be. I can remember her recipe said to use fresh tomatoes, but than the sauce needed sugar and balsamic vinegar to balance the taste. I discovered this balance was already there, when I used a can of organically grown, peeled and chopped tomatoes. It’s those little differences which make it your own. Anyway, you should try and see for yourself. But whenever you feel like making something special with just a little effort or ingredients, this absolutely is the one!
