INGREDIENTS  4-6 people

1 tray 275g SiPomodoro Boterino
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
6 cloves of garlic
1/2 Heart of Leek Flavors from My Garden
1/3 cup dry red wine
100 ml of vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tray Basil Flavors from My Garden
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
100 g grated Parmigiano Reggiano
500g Spaghetti
1 fresh mozzarella
2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
First, mince the garlic, wash and finely slice the leeks and cut the Boterino cherry tomatoes into quarters.
Heat a saucepan over medium heat and pour in a generous portion of extra virgin olive oil. When hot, add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 45 seconds. Add the leeks to the saucepan, stir and cook another 3 minutes. Pour in the red wine and bring to the boil. Let the wine evaporate and reduce it by half, then add the vegetable broth and the Boterino cherry tomatoes. Add the lemon zest, season with salt and pepper and bring the sauce to a boil. Let the sauce simmer on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t stick. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil cut into strips and the grated Parmesan. While the sauce is cooking over a low heat, cook the pasta al dente, then drain properly and stir it in the pan with the still hot sauce. Transfer the spaghetti to a large serving dish, finish with the fresh mozzarella, a few drops of extra virgin olive oil, basil leaves and freshly ground black pepper.
Serve immediately.
