Clam soup with hazelnut and tomato puree

Clam soup with hazelnut and tomato puree

Made with Mutti Passata

Mutti Passata is a very versatile product that can be used in quick dishes due to the fact it is already reduced, as well as in slower cook dishes like Bolognese. However it is cooked it will retain its bright red colour, velvety texture and sweet flavour. Velvety smooth with no skins or seeds, it takes 2kg of fresh tomatoes to make 1kg of Mutti Passata.

  3. Add the clams and the chopped hazelnuts, and cover with the port. Allow to evaporate and add the passata.
  4. Finally add the chopped parsley and season with the salt and pepper. Cook for about 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, cut the slices of bread into cubes or triangles. Season with olive oil and salt and toast in a non-stick frying pan or the oven.
