Wheels with tomato confit, anchovies and caciocavallo: simplicity that wins. A first course for nothing challenging, that is a riot of flavors of my beloved South. Prepared with tomatoes Piccadilly and the cheese that I brought from my tour in Puglia. Since in order to make this dish serve TOMATO CONFIT, I advise you to prepare a couple of trays, so dampened the ignition timing of the oven. To make them come soft and tasty you will have to keep it on at 120-130 degrees for at least a couple of hours. Remember that a tomato confit is on all: the baked fish, in the omelette, meat pizzaiola. In short, Surely you will not miss the opportunities to use them. For example, to prepare PACCHERI WITH TOMATOES CONFIT, BLACK SESAME AND CRUMBS OF BREAD.
Of course you can prepare them quietly one day in advance. If you do not like the wheels I recommend you use in any case a short pasta and drain it al dente. The wheels with confit tomatoes, anchovies and caciocavallo are a first delicious pasta is hot, is lukewarm, is cool. They are therefore a wild card for the spring and the approaching summer: in case you decide to enjoy this cold pasta, Remember to keep it at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving and mist you with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Remember that on my YouTube channel also you find a playlist with many VIDEO RECIPES SICILIANE and not only.
The cheese must be matured, to give the spicy note that makes you want to eat another bite: You can substitute a provolone. If you are interested in first cold, to be prepared in advance or in salads ahead of the first warm, have a look at all my OF SALAD RECIPES. Have a good day!
