In English this recipe's name is Country Pasta. It's a simple recipe that my mom grew up eating in Sicily, especially at harvest time when they would eat outdoors.
The tasty sauce is made with fresh tomatoes and raw garlic which is so good for your health. Did you know that consuming raw garlic has been linked to reducing the risk of 4 of the major causes of death worldwide? It can help to control blood high pressure, to regulate blood sugar levels, encourage circulation and has has been recognized for its potential anti cancer properties. That's not to mention that it can also help fight against the common cold and other infections. These are great reasons to give this recipe a try and you can enjoy it as part of the Mediterranean Diet.
This is how the Sicilians love to eat their pasta! Watch how we do it in the video!
We love this recipe because it contains our favorite pasta with a healthy, seasonal vegetable that is perfect for Fall. We add in lots of raw garlic which certainly adds to the flavor of the dish but it also boosts your immune system which is so important during the change of seasons.
