The ingredients for this recipe include:

1 ¼ cup of orecchiette pasta

1 ½ cup of cherry tomatoes

1 cup of grated cacioricotta cheese

Italian olive oil

Fresh basil


In order to cook this recipe, a large serving bowl and large pan for boiling water will be needed. First, slice the cherry tomatoes into small cubes. Season the cube shaped tomatoes with salt. Place them into a large serving bowl. Add some of the grated cacioricotta cheese and some fresh basil leaves. Also add some of the extra virgin olive oil. Make sure to use extra virgin olive oil from Puglia to achieve the full taste of this pasta dish.

In the meantime, boil a large pan of water. Add some salt and cook the orecchiette pasta until it is al dente, meaning that the pasta is firm and not too soft. Remove the cooked pasta from the water. Combine it together with the cherry tomatoes, cacioricotta cheese, and fresh basil leaves. Throw in a few extra fresh basil leaves, another sprinkle of the cacioricotta cheese, and one more drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. The cacioricotta cheese can also be used as a garnish when the dish is ready to be served. Serve this dish immediately after preparation and enjoy!
