"Pacchetelle" is an ancient method used by Vesuvian women to preserve tomatoes harvested in July and August all year around. The yellow tomatoes were dried, then cut in half and pasteurise at bain-marie. Their rich and persistent flavour balance the acidity and sweetness making this tomato the perfect companion for fish recipes, especially with pasta.
HOW TO USE IT
Pour some extra virgin olive oil in a pan, braise some fresh tuna, then throw in the Pacchetelle. Let cook for a few minutes, then toss in the pasta and serve. Otherwise also great on bruschetta and some venture these tomatoes on Pizza!
WHY WE LOVE IT
Their different taste is something quite intriguing and we love the recipes that we can create with these Pacchetelle. Especially main courses with seafood.
