INGREDIENTS

  • 4 mature tomatoes of medium size
  • Olive oil
  • Salt according to your preferences
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup chopped pancetta
  • 150 gr goat cheese cut into cubes
  • 500 gr rigatoni
  • Parsley leaves for serving

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.

Cut the tomatoes in slices and spread them on a pan. Season them with olive oil, salt (at will) and spread the chopped pancetta all over the pan.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until the tomatoes soften. Place the pieces of goat cheese on each tomato and turn up the heat at 250 o C. Bake for about 10 more minutes until the pancetta becomes crisp and the cheese gets a golden color.

Boil the rigatoni according to the instructions of the packaging (al dente) and drain well. Place them in a large serving bowl, add some olive oil and mix them so they do not stick together. With a spoon, put half the tomatoes with the melted cheese and the pancetta over the macaroni, add a little olive oil and stir with the rigatoni until the tomatoes are dissolved and mixed with the whole.

For serving, add the remaining tomatoes with the melted cheese and pancetta on the side of each dish. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and add parsley leaves.
