INGREDIENTS

400 gr spaghetti (or tagliatelle or penne)
1 cloves garlic
400 gr Napoli tomato Sauce or 1 bottle of Organic cherry tomatoes sauce
Burrata: 2 large ball of fresh burrata
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil Nocellara del Belice IGP
2 handfuls flat-leaf Basils finely chopped

PREPARATION

  1. Start by finely chopping the basils and the garlic.
  2. In a large pot, bring four litres of water to boil. Then add the sea salt.
  3. Cook the pasta in the boiling water for the time that’s on the package minus one minute.
  4. While the pasta cooks, add the extra virgin olive oil to a non-stick or stainless steel pan.
  5. When the oil is warm, add the finely chopped garlic. Let fry in the oil for about one minute. Make sure your heat is on low and the oil doesn’t get too hot. You don’t want to burn the oil, nor the garlic.
