Ingredients · Serves 4

  • 250 grams (one box) of Bontasana White Corn Pennette Rigate
  • 6 Perini or San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove, inner germ removed
  • 1 small fresh red chili pepper, spice level to your taste, seeds removed
  • 25 grams extra virgin olive oil + additional for serving
  • 8-10 fresh basil leaves, sliced thin
  • 1 sprig fresh oregano, leaves finely chopped
  • Vegan Parmesan cheese, grated, to taste
  • Salt to taste

Wash the tomatoes, cut the skins and blanch in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Then transfer the tomatoes to a bowl of ice water and peel off the skins.

Together with the clove of garlic and red chili pepper, place just over half the tomatoes in a blender and purée.

Chop the remaining tomatoes and add them to a large bowl with the basil, oregano, extra virgin olive oil and the puréed tomatoes. Season with salt and set aside.

Cook the White Corn Pennette Rigate in a large pot with plenty of boiling water. Drain halfway through the suggested cooking time.

Transfer the prepared tomato sauce to a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add in the Pennette. Finish cooking the pasta in the pan with the sauce. If necessary, add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta water.

Stir in a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a tablespoon of the grated vegan cheese. Serve with a few shavings of the vegan Parmesan and some fresh oregano leaves.
