Here is a first course full of energy, color and character, perfect for lovers of strong and decisive flavors. It is a first course of cannulated sagne - a typical Salento pasta format - seasoned with a rich sauce prepared with rustic passata and spicy pescatorino. An intriguing and delicious combination, capable of giving emotions to fish lovers as well as to lovers of the "angry" versions of the great classics.
Put the sagne to cook in boiling salted water. Finely chop a shallot and fry it in a little oil, taking care not to burn it. Add the pass. Finely chop the pescatorino and add it to the sauce. Cook until the sauce has thickened properly. Drain the pasta, toss in the prepared sauce, and serve adding some mozzarella and a few rocket leaves.
