Casarecce translates to “homemade” (“casa” denotes home in Italian), and hails from Sicily, the largest island of the Mediterranean and, indubitably, one of its gastronomic centres. Casarecce resemble a loosely-rolled scroll, with many surfaces making it ideal for catching a hearty, meaty sauce. Its rustic, homemade appearance also makes it a comforting shape of pasta to enjoy with this fresh, slow-roasted tomato sauce.
Indeed, like casarecce, the datterini tomatoes we use to create this special sauce come from the island of Sicily. There, in the abundant sunshine, they take on a beautiful, blushing colour and are full of fragrance. Literally meaning “dates”, datterini tomatoes, like dates, are known for their exceptional sweetness. By slow-roasting and pairing with fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil, this natural sweetness is showcased. This week, we serve this dish with pangrattato (breadcrumbs) for added texture and crunch.
