Tips

  • You can use any type of whole wheat pasta you like
  • This recipe goes well with peppers, which can also be spicy
  • If you don’t have fresh tomatoes, you can use canned or cherry tomatoes instead
  • This tomato sauce is not cooked but it is very easy and tasty and it will thrill you!
  • It is a light and cool summer dish. You can add grilled eggplant, some feta cheese and enjoy it as a cold pasta salad
  • In wintertime, you can prefer warm pasta and you can make it more ‘spicy’ by adding black olives and more bukovo

 

Nutrition tips

  1. Did you know that bukovo contains a powerful antioxidant, capsaicin, which improves your metabolism’s functions?
  2. Whole wheat fusilli is the ideal option, but you can always use gluten free pasta in case you suffer from celiac disease.
