making it

All the above ingredients must be fried (in Italy we say "saltare", "to make something jump") meaning a quick cooking in a little hot oil and not properly the action of frying usually adopted for french fries.

Add a few tomatoes cut in cubes and finally with pasta which has been previously boiled 'al dente'.

With thanks to Trattoria Il Porto in Monopoli (Via porto 17, Monopoli, Bari) for this recipe.
