The name of this dish, spaghetti Turiddu, is a tribute to the character of 'Turiddu’ in Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana. The preparation takes really just a moment, and the ingredients are very few, but it is essential to have a good oregano, fragrant. For the rest only serve tomatoes into large pieces, oil, pepper if you like, some black olives and you're done.
