Pappa con Pomodoro

 

Il Ristoro di Frate Cipolla’s pappa con pomodoro

Pappa con Pomodoro

This is a great recipe–it’s interesting how Italian cuisine is often presented here in the US as expensive, prepared for the erudite, upper-crust food served with refined linens and exotic presentations by guys wearing tuxedos.  That sort of thing certainly has its place, but one of the best parts of the food you’ll experience in Italy is the rustic, simple, and non-wasteful element.  Some of the most flavorful dishes are peasant-inspired recipes passed down over generations by people who couldn’t afford to waste food.

Fresh basil, stale bread…delicious!  Think we’re making this tomorrow.
