Pasta with baked tomatoes, bread crumbs and black sesame. To me the Red pasta, with tomato, brings joy. I like the one with the simple fresh salsa, the one with raw tomatoes, the one with the tomatoes cut in large chunks… Today I propose a variation on tasty and simple, all vegetarian. Paccheri (but use your favorite pasta) with tomato confit, cooked a little’ less than usual so that they are still ' pulpy’ and then sprinkled with black sesame seeds and toasted bread crumbs. All flavored with fresh herbs: Thyme, Marjoram and oregano. The only thing you have to do is turn on the oven and cut the tomatoes, then Cook pasta… and ready on the table. Obviously it is a vegetarian dish, and this time even vegan without having to remove any ingredient.
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 360 grams of pasta
- Piccadilly tomatoes 20
- oregano, fresh thyme and Marjoram as required
- 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
- 8 tablespoons of grated bread stale
- salt and pepper
- extra virgin olive oil as required
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
To prepare tomato confit: Preheat the oven at 100 degrees. Wash the tomatoes, dry them, cut them in half and arrange them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sugar, salt and the thyme leaves, Marjoram and oregano and bake for about an hour.
Meanwhile, Toast for two minutes the sesame seeds in a pan piping hot and mix the breadcrumbs.
Sprinkle the tomatoes with bread crumbs and Sesame (keep aside a little for garnish), drizzle everything with a little extra virgin olive oil and bake for another 30 minutes, until the bread crumbs will not have absorbed the water and tomatoes will not become gilded.
Boil the pasta in salted water and drain it al dente, holding a cup of the cooking water. Season the pasta with tomatoes (leave aside anyone for garnish) mix over low heat with cooking water, until the pasta will not be wrapped in a creamy emulsion of bread and tomato.
Serve garnished the dish with some tomato confit and fresh herbs. If you like, Sprinkle some sesame seed on the plate. Bon appétit!
