Extra Light Olive Oil

Penne rigate

Step by step

  1. Step 1

    Blanch the basil leaves by plunging them first into boiling water and then into cold water. Dry them well, crush with the olive oil and pour into a glass bottle.

     

  2. Step 2

    Crush the peppercorns and add to the basil-flavoured olive oil, together with the dried oregano and a sprig of fresh thyme. Leave to marinate for a whole day and you’ll have a herb-flavoured olive oil to use with a thousand and one dishes.

  3. Step 3

    Peel and cut the mango into small cubes. Peel, deseed and cube the tomatoes. Boil the penne following the instructions on the packet.

  4. Step 4

    Once cooked, wash with cold water and dress with the herb-flavoured olive oil. Mix with the cubed tomatoes and mangos, corn nuts and feta cheese.
