Filetto di Pomodoro Sauce With Rigatoni – Episode 185By
So after a 3 month plus break we are back. While some show hosts are retiring and un-retiring in the same day, I just chose to go away for a little while. Anyway the offseason was great, Little Kahuna2 is doing wonderful though his non sleeping habit is quite a drain and really is probably the sole reason for the break in episodes. Well enough of that, it is food time.
The is a Filetto sauce and honestly up until a month ago, I had never heard of it. Of course I have thrown onion in a pan with olive oil, garlic, tomato and some prosciutto before but never really gave thought to it having a real name. I guess what seperates this from an everyday sauce is the amount of onion. Never would I put two huge onions in like this recipe calls for but it works. It works in a great way, the onions just meld into a beautiful sweet backdrop for the tomatoes.
Also this sauce is great because you need to be hands on to cook it- and that is great? Yes, that means you get to stand in the kitchen drinking wine and cutting hunks of cheese and eating Prosciutto while slowly simmering the onions. Yes that is great.
Well hopefully I will be getting up an episode a week and as summer draws near will get back to Taste Test Tuesdays-
