Pronunciation:  PAC - uh - ree

These large hollow pasta pasta tubes are about an inch in diameter. Paccheri are so large that they collapse when cooked, trapping inside them whatever they have been sauced with. The name means “slaps,” because they supposedly make a noise like slaps when lifted by a fork. Paccheri could be stuffed or used with chunky sauces. Cooking time 7-10 min.

 

The Recipe:

Paccheri with Tomato Sauce
(preparation time: 15 minutes)

Ingredients for 4 people:
1 pound paccheri
basil
1 can tomato sauce
salt
pepper
1 cloves garlic
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation:
Heat oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat. Brown garlic in the pan, then remove it. Add basil, the tomato pulp, salt, white pepper and a pinch of sugar. Stir. Let it cook over bright fire for 5 minutes. Cook paccheri until al dente. Drain, mix well with the sauce, and serve.
