CHERRY TOMATO SAUCE

Tomato (from the aztec xitomatl) was imported to Europe and became known for its presumed aphrodisiac powers and for its intense yellow color. The color was the reason for its Italian name, as it also became known as “pomme d’amour” and “pomo d’oro”. Only later when the tomato plant was used in the South of Italy, the soil changed the colour of the fruit to red. The cherry tomato, with a less sour and more delicate flavor, is perfect for exalting the taste of hard wheat pasta on its own or as a basis for more complex sauces. You can have tradition or fantasy according to the recipe you choose.
