FOR THE PASTA
homemade or store bought Fusilli
Filippo Berio Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
FOR THE SAUCE
(Makes about 2 cups
Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
anchovy fillets in salt, rinsed and dried
Ounces green olives in brine, drained, pitted and diced
1 3/4 cups
Tomato and Basil Sauce
ounces fresh Mozzarella (fior di latte), diced
Fine sea salt to taste
Grinding ofblack Pepper
Bring the water to a boil in a pasta pot with an insert. Add the salt and Fusilli. For commercially prepared Fusilli, follow the directions on page 29. For homemade, the cooking time will be less but more than for most types of homemade pasta because of their thickness. Cook until a! dente, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the Fusilli and place them in a large bowl. Toss with the 1 tablespoon olive oil, cover, and set aside.
Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium-size saucepan over low heat, stir in the anchovies with a wooden spoon, and cook until they almost dissolve into the oil. Stir in the olives and tomato sauce, bring the ingredients to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the mozzarella, pour the sauce over the fusilli, and mix everything together very quickly, allowing the cheese to melt. Add the salt, pepper, and oregano, toss again, and transfer the mixture to a pasta platter. Serve immediately.
