Nutrition facts

This sauce is very simple and can be prepared meanwhile you are cooking pasta.
In a saucepan add the puréed tomatoes, wine, salt and all the aromatic herbs.
Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes; then add peas.
Keep cooking, stirring, until the sauce thickens. The cooked ham can be added at the last minute.
If you cook pasta al dente, you can season it in the saucepan, directly over the flame.
Switch off the gas and add the olive oil. Stir; your pasta is ready!


We suggest fresh egg pasta.
