Pomodoro Mozzarella Fresca with Artisan Gemelli pasta: Method

  1. Heat the Olive Oil In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the finely diced shallots and sauté until they turn golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the white wine to deglaze the pan, stirring to lift any caramelized bits from the bottom.
  5. Stir in the sugar and Mutti Polpa. Mix well.
  6. Add the basil leaves (or dried basil) and reduce the heat to low. Let the sauce simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  7. After simmering, use a stick blender to blend the sauce until smooth. Adjust seasoning if needed.
  8. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the Artisan Gemelli pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  9. In a large bowl or the same pot, combine the cooked Gemelli with the prepared tomato sauce. Toss to coat evenly.
  10. Divide the sauced pasta among serving plates. Top each serving with slices or torn pieces of fresh mozzarella.
  11. Add fresh basil leaves on top of the mozzarella. If using, drizzle with basil crème for extra flavor.
  12. Finally, place thin slices of Prosciutto di Parma over the pasta for a touch of savory goodness
