Our pasta Casareccia alla Crudaiolais a celebration of fresh tomatoes. The word “crudaiola” comes from “crudo,” meaning rawin Italian. What makes this pasta “raw”? Rather than a traditional cooked tomato sauce, it features a bright sauce of blitzed fresh Datterini tomatoes. The result is a fragrant dish that is simple and surprising.

The fresh notes of the pasta sauce are complemented by the beautiful shape of Rummo’s pasta Casareccia, a rustic shape that holds the sauce in its curved crevices. Small cubes of Latteria Sorrentina Fior di Latte add a summer feel that recalls the traditional “pasta fredda” - a pasta that is served cold in the summer months and features cherry tomatoes and mozzarella.

We think our pasta Casareccia alla Crudaiola is the perfect precursor to summer.
