Caprese Salad Wine Marry

The traditional Caprese Italian salad carries buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. Many people use pesto instead of basil.
Here just did with rocket ...

Usually cut tomatoes and mozzarella the same size.
Put a slice of mozzarella, a slice of tomato and a basil leaf.

Basil Pesto
1 bunch fresh basil
50g almonds
50g parmesan
50ml of good olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed

Method of preparation
1. First place the almonds in the blender, then the garlic, the cheese, and the other ingredients.
2. Process, if you want thicker place less oil.
You can use a pestle or chop everything by hand and finally incorporate the olive oil if you want more rustic.

Chianti Cecchi Marry with Pasta Alla Amatriciana

I bought this wine at Pisa airport when I returned from my trip to Italy.

I made the harmonization of this wine with a delicious pasta Alla Amatriciana. In this link you can see the recipe.
The wine has a ruby color, clear, bright.
In the nose presents red fruits.
It has a medium body, good acidity, with a little alcohol left over, confirms the currant that I felt in the nose and has a good persistence.

It was a good accompaniment to the folder, one complemented the other.

Pasta Alla Amatriciana Marry With Chianti Cecchi

This beautiful dish I ate at an Italian restaurant in what I always call Riverside 2, was a delight and harmonized very well with the wine. If you want to know this nice restaurant is worth. The post code is: SE1 7BL - London.

But if you want to take the risk to do at home here is a suggestion of the recipe:

500 grams of hard wheat pasta
250 grams of bacon
500 grams of peeled tomatoe
50 milliliters of dry white wine
150 grams parmesan cheese
50 grams of onion
50 milliliters of olive oil
Sugar if needed

1.     Cut the onion and bacon into small cubes.
2.     Put the olive oil in the pan and let it heat, place the bacon and let it start to brown. Add the onion and sauté a little.
3.     Add chopped tomatoes and wine and cook until it becomes a sauce.
4.     Season with the salt, and if the sauce is very acid correct with a little sugar.
5.     Add the parmesan cheese, let in.

6.     Cook the pasta al dente, add the sauce, mix and serve immediately.

You can see the harmonization
