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.
