Pasta alla vesuviana
A pasta as hot as a volcano!
- Bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil.
- Wash the capers thoroughly under running water. Peel the onion, halve it and cut it into thin half rings. Drain the mozzarella and cut into small pieces.
- Heat some olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and sauté the onions until translucent.
- Now add the spaghetti to the boiling water and cook until al dente.
- Add the peeled tomatoes to the frying pan and carefully crush them with a wooden spoon. Crumble in the dried hot pepper, add the olives and capers and simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes. Then add the mozzarella and a little pasta water. Season with salt and mix everything thoroughly until a creamy sauce is obtained.
- Drain the pasta and add it directly to the sauce. Mix everything well and let it rest briefly in the frying pan.
- Finally, arrange on deep plates, sprinkle with dried oregano and serve hot.Buon appetito!
