BASIC RECIPE: Gluten-free Tagliolini with Tomato Sauce

Classical preparation of a gluten-free pasta with tomato sauce. The particular cooking technique of with subsequent washing can be used for the realization of any other corn pasta recipe.

Preparation Time  35 minutes

Cooking Time  20 minutes

Servings   4 persons

  • 350 g Tomato puree
  • 1/4 Chopped white onion
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • 20 g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 500 g De Tacchi gluten free Maranello Corn Tagliolini
  1. Prepare the ingredients for the sauce.
  2. In a large pan heat the olive oil with the onion. Then add the tomato sauce and, if you like, raw tomato slices. Incorporate a pinch of salt and sugar, stirring to ensure everything blends evenly. Once the sauce begins to simmer, remove from heat.

  1. Toss the noodles in boiling salted water. The boiling must be full and tumultuous.

              2. Cook over medium-high heat, always keeping the boil alive.

           3. Taste the tagliolini to check the desired consistency and when it is reached, drain them. The ideal consistency should be pretty “al dente”, since the cooking is completed in the pan together with the sauce. Drain (make sure to preserve a bit of cooking water). Once drained, wash the tagliolini with abundant cold water, mixing it with the hand (being careful not to get burnt) and ensuring that it has become uniformly cold.
