It is definitely one of the most representative meals of our culinary culture. We prepare it at parties, at family gatherings, before any rain, in short, we prepare it with any excuse, but its purpose is always the same, to please our loved ones. It is one of those dishes that have no social level, since it is preparing in the same way in low-income households as in the homes of the more affluent.
You can present it as a main dish, as a filling of some delicious tortillas. You can also present it as a dip, which can easily get you out of a hurry when you have guests at home, since you can serve it accompanied by sour cream and plantain banana chips and it becomes a delicious appetizer.
The “Pasta al pomodoro” is very a classic in the Italian cuisine. Although it may seem very banal, the truth is that not many reach the right contrast of the flavors. It is a sauce that requires very few ingredients, but well chosen. A very simple preparation, it is true, but at the same time of great gastronomic sensitivity.
