Handmade Orecchiette with a Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce (v.) (gf. avail.)

Orecchiette, literally ‘little ears’, are a perfect example of the difference that fresh production can make to pasta. Using only flour and water, the little shell shapes have a firm bite, but a soft interior, avoiding the sogginess often found in reboiled dry pasta.

Another delight is of course the variety of shapes inherent in hand-crafting. Orecchiette are known and loved in their rugged home region of Apulia for their ability to scoop up smaller elements of the sauce, such as this beautiful sun-dried tomato sauce, which is entirely plant-based.

To prepare our sauce, we have searched far and wide for Italy's finest sun-dried tomatoes, which we find in the prime tomato fields of Puglia; in the small comune of San Pietro Vernotico, specifically. Here, in Italy's driest region, tomatoes are left out to dry out in the unrelenting heat of the sun. Aside from taking on a beautiful flavour, these sun-kissed beauties are also a concentrated source of nutrients, providing vitamins C and K, iron, and lycopene, an antioxidant associated with lower risk of certain cancers.

INGREDIENTS (allergens in bold): Fresh pasta (Wheat flour, water, Salt), San Marzano Tomatoes, Black Pepper, Chilli flakes, pine nuts.
GARNISH INGREDIENTS: Vegan parmesan.
