Tomato, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella Pasta

... the only cooking
involved is in boiling
the pasta
Pasta Recipes    Previous1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  Next

A robust southern
Italian tomatosauce
usually made with
onions, garlic, red
pepper, capers, olives,
and anchovies. The
reference to prostitutes
supposedly suggests
this was a sauce
quickly made by such
women between
clients. It is most often
associated with
Naples and Calabria,
although versions are
throughout Italy.

A Roman pasta
sauce usually
prepared with cream,
guanciale or
pancetta, pecorino or
parmigiano, into
which a raw egg is
added and cooked by
the heat of the pasta
itself. The name
literally means
"charcoal style" and
some people claim
that the dish was
created by the coal
miners of the
mountains between
Abruzzo and Lazio.

In the style of Capri,
this sauce is usually
made from lightly
cooked fresh
tomatoes, basil,
olive oil, and
mozzarella.  It can
be used on pasta,
meat, fish, or
salads.  Insalata
alla caprese is a
salad of tomatoes,
basil, and
mozzarella dressed
with oil and vinegar.

In the style of Bologna,
this sauce usually
refers to a hearty, long
simmered vegetable
and meat sauce called
a ragu. A traditional
Bolognese sauce
contains ground pork,
beef, pancetta, garlic,
tomatoes, vegetables,
and often chicken

Although this sauce
literally means
"mariner's style" it is
not a seafood sauce.
The name is explained
by the story that
fisherman's wives
would make a fast,
fresh sauce upon the
arrival of their
husbands from the
sea.  The ingredients
may vary but usually
include garlic, olive oil,
crushed tomatoes and
