Agnolotto Verde Ingredients:
Agnolotto Verde with fresh tomato salsa
Recipe suggestion: for 3 People
- 2 purple garlic cloves
- 6 ripe tomatoes
- good extra virgin olive oil
- sea salt
- cracked black pepper
- fresh basil
Simply place a large pot on your stove, salt the water.
When boiling cook the tomato in the water for few minutes, as soon you will see the skin of the tomato breaking, remove and place under cold running water, keep the pot with the hot water going, that’s where you will be cooking your pasta.
Skin the tomatoes, remove the seeds from inside and chop the tomato pulp into little cubes, keep aside.
In a large non-stick frying pan with high edges, place a drizzle of oil. Add the whole garlic. If you like a mild flavour simply squash with the skin on. For a more intense flavour simply chop or slice the garlic and place in the oil, gently stir-fry without burning. Add the chopped fresh tomato, season with salt and cracked pepper and fresh tomato. You will only need about 5 minutes to cook. You can add a little of boiling water to help simmer the tomato.
Place you pasta straight from the packet into the boiling water, stir gently in the first minute avoiding any pasta to stick to the bottom of the pot.
Stir periodically until its cooked, usually all our pasta takes about 3-4 minutes to cook. Drain the pasta and mix with the sauce on a gentle heat. add the chopped fresh basil and your pasta is ready to be served. You can add fresh parmesan, shaved or grated, a drizzle of good extra Virgin olive oil, I found some of the Local one very nice.
