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'.
