300gr Stale bread
500gr Fresh Ripe Tomatoes "Vesuviani"
1 lt Vegetable broth
1/2 clove Garlic
a bunch Basil
1 Fresh Red Hot Chilly Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
One of the most ancient recipes.
In the old families, it was used not to throw away anything. So the stale bread was given to animals or reused as an ingredient for different preparations.
Pappa al Pomodoro is one of them and it is probably the simplest.
Only a few ingredients and only a few minutes of cooking.
This dish is good eaten during the summer or the winter because it is always good: served cold or hot or lukewarm, with a “C” of extra virgin olive oil and never cheese!
Cover the bottom of a saucepan with olive oil and add the leek cut in slices.
