    Perhaps it would be better to call Penne with oregano because it is the herb that you can taste more! However, with all these beautiful fresh herbs it comes out an inviting sauce, with the sun in!
    Ingredients for 4 people:
    350 gr. Penne
    150 gr.peeled tomatoes
    1 spring onion
    1 clove of fresh garlic
    Gr 150 (1) buffalo mozzarella
    Extra virgin olive oil
    The herbs should all be very abundant, a nice bunch of each. Put the oil in a pan and add the garlic and onion finely chopped, cook a few minutes and add all the herbs finely chopped as well. Cook until the garlic and the onion is golden, add the tomato puree, salt and pepper and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes. Cook the penne in salted water until al dente, and finish their cooking in the pan with the sauce. When ready , add the diced mozzarella.

    Ingredients (4 people):
    600 gr. Minced veal
    1 egg
    1 slice of bread
    5 leaves of sage
    50 gr. Grated Parmigiano cheese
    12 cooked ham
    12 thin slices of Scamorza cheese
    5 courgettes
    1 spring onion
    15 cherry tomatoes
    1 teaspoon of sugar
    Extra virgin olive oil


    Mix the minced meat with a slice of bread soaked in water, add the egg, Parmigiano, a pinch of salt, and  a pinch of  nutmeg. Work it very well and  let it rest in refrigerator for half an hour. Half an hour later, lay the meat on a sheet of wax paper (should be about 3 cm.) put another sheet of paper on it. Roll it with a rolling pin (or a bottle) to compact the mixture. When ready put it in the fridge for another half hour. In the  meanwhile, cut the courgettes into sticks (by removing the inner pulp) and cook them in a pan with the finely chopped onion and two spoons of olive oil. Cook it for 15 minutes, stirring constantly: the courgettes should result crunchy. Now add the basil leaves, salt and pepper. Put the tomatoes in a baking pan with a little ‘oil, a pinch of salt, a teaspoon of sugar, plenty of oregano and bake at 200 degrees for about 1 hour. It ‘s time to remove the meat from the refrigerator: with a knife cut them into squares and create a sandwich stuffed with a slice of cooked ham and a slice of scamorza. When ready cut  again in half (triangles are more convenient for cooking!). Let them cook in a pan with olive oil, rosemary and sage, on low heat for 15 minutes. Serve the stuffed veal with courgettes and cherry tomatoes.
