Pasta with Raw Tomato Sauce
Summer’s tomatoes are most flavorful eaten raw. But could we get the texture of a sauce with no cooking?
Why This Recipe Works
Tomatoes are at their premium state in the peak of summertime, and we were looking for another way to enjoy them besides in their usual form: sliced or in a BLT. After sitting in an aromatic solution of oregano, good-quality olive oil, garlic, salt, and sugar, the tomatoes break down and release some of their juices. Rather than discard the extracted tomato liquid, we cooked the pasta in it, resulting in infused tomato flavor in every bite.
