How to make it

  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Heat the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large sauté pan set on medium high heat until sizzling (about 3 minutes).
  • Stir in garlic, red pepper flakes, raisins and pine nuts. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add diced tomatoes, parsley, basil, mint, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Cook for 3 more minutes.
  • Add cooked pasta to the sauce. Cook until pasta is coated with the sauce, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Toss pasta in the pan with bread crumb mixture.
  • Remove from heat. Add cheese and stir well.
  • To make toasted bread crumbs, heat a nonstick pan over high heat for 2 minutes.
  • Add breadcrumbs. Reduce the heat to low and stir well for 1-2 minutes, until bread crumbs start to brown. Pour bread crumbs on a plate to cool, until ready to use.

    Years ago, my Sicilian step-mother used to make Braciole, a stuffed meat roll, and in her version were raisins. I thought it was kooky, until I tasted it - the sweetness almost disappears and instead you get another layer of flavor and texture.
