This sauce is perfect served over your choice of freshly-cooked pasta. 

Ingredients

    • 8 ounces penne pasta
    • 2 1/2 cups checca sauce
    • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    • Salt

Preparation

1. Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring often, about 8 minutes. Drain well, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water.

2. In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the tomato mixture, pasta water and fresh mozzarella. Season with salt, to taste.
