There are several variations of this quick and easy recipe. The first is pasta with stracchino, rocket and cherry tomatoes obtained by adding 200 g of cherry tomatoes cut into quarters after having tossed the pasta in a pan. They will give a really pleasant fresh and crunchy note, perfect if you are looking for a first summer. Equally simple, pasta with rocket, stracchino and walnuts is obtained by adding 50 g of walnuts at the end, after having been sautéed in a pan.

For the pasta with stracchino and rocket and speck , on the other hand, we recommend that you skip the speck sticks in a separate pan and add it to the pasta at the end. So it will remain crunchy and tasty. The same goes for pasta with stracchino, rocket and raw ham . In both cases, 100 g of speck or raw diced or sticks will suffice.

Also try the cold version of pasta with tomatoes , rocket and mozzarella, perfect for summer.


We advise you to consume this first course freshly made to avoid the rocket from spoiling with the heat.
