SIMPLE IS ALWAYS BEST
Spanish conquistadors introduced tomatoes to Europe by bringing them in from Central and South America. But Pasta al Pomodoro as a dish only started becoming popular in 1837, when Ippolito Cavalcanti, a chef and author, published the first recipe for “vermicelli al pomodoro.”
Literally meaning “pasta with tomato sauce,” Pasta al Pomodoro has now become such a classic Italian dish, it’s basically part of the national identity.
