For something a little different, try other types of baby tomatoes such as yellow pear tomatoes, baby romas or some of the other varieties that are available in the height of summer. Make sure you use a good-quality, home-style salami.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g pasta of your choice, such as fricelli or rigatoni
olive oil, for cooking
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
100g good-quality, home-style salami, sliced
250g cherry tomatoes
4 tablespoons chicken stock
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped basil
freshly grated parmesan cheese, to serve

Method

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Add a good pinch of salt. Add the pasta and stir until the water has returned to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and cook the pasta at a fast simmer for 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a medium-sized saucepan over medium–high heat. Add a generous splash of oil and the onion and cook for 3–4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1–2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the salami and cook for 3–4 minutes until the salami starts to turn golden brown. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 4–5 minutes, stirring often, until the tomatoes start to break down and caramelise.
  3. Add the stock, season with the pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for around 5–6 minutes, or until the sauce reduces. Check the seasoning and add the basil.
  4. Check that the pasta is cooked, then drain well and toss with the sauce. Serve with the freshly grated parmesan.
