5 Delizioso Meals Using Cirio Passata!

Tomatoes are a chef’s dream - versatile, delicious, and packed full of vitamin goodness! Cirio’s range of tomato Passata harnesses all of the deep, rich flavour of Italian tomatoes, making them the staple ingredient for authentic Italian dishes. Here are 5 of the best to see you through the week…

5 Delizioso Meals Using Cirio Passata!

1. Warm Vegetable Tartlet in Rich Tomato Sauce

For a real winter warmer, try this tartlet packed with flavour and covered in a velvety tomato sauce… Heat chopped peppers, chopped courgette and chopped onion in a little olive oil before piling onto a baked puff pastry base with chopped carrot, sliced leek and smoked ricotta. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat up Cirio Passata (500g) with olive oil and seasoning, before pouring onto your finished tartlet - perfetto!

2. Risotto di Pavia (Pavia Style!)

From the North of Italy comes this tasty dinner... Boil half a chopped onion, borlotti beans, celery and salt for an hour before blending into a sauce. Saute the remaining half of the onion in a little olive oil and add Cirio Passata Classica (PET bottle). Place both sauces into a pan and add vegetarian white wine, stock and risotto rice. Simmer and gently stir until the rice is cooked, before finishing with a sprinkling of vegetarian Parmesan-style cheese!
