"Everything you see I owe to spaghetti." Sophia LorenSophia Loren is one of the greatest actresses and style icons. The Italian beauty sure knows how to cook too :) I am a big fan of her recipes. Here is her famous spaghetti dish Con Pomodoro Crudo.
For six persons
1 1/2 pound spaghetti
2 pounds tomatoes, not quite ripe, chopped
1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
2 medium red or Vidalia onions (or less), thinly sliced
1/4 cup pitted Sicilian green olives, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons drained capers
1/4 cup minced fresh Italian parsley
12 chopped fresh oregano leaves
2 cloves garlic, crushed
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Cook the pasta until just al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, place in a large serving bowl: Tomatoes, mozzarella, onions, olives, capers, parsley, oregano, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the oil over and toss gently.
When the pasta is ready, pour it into a colander and quickly rinse it under cold water; drain well and add the warm spaghetti to the bowl.
Toss to combine, and serve. Pass the cheese at the table.
