Spaghetti with Strawberry Sauce

Spaghetti with Strawberry Sauce

Suprising combination of spaghetti with sauce made from ICONS strawberries. Definitely worth a try!

Ingredients

1 pound good-quality dried spaghetti
1 pound ripe strawberries, cleaned and halved
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for finishing
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 cup tomato purée
4 ounces reserved pasta water
Sea salt, pepper


Preparation

Clean the strawberries, remove the caps and halve them.

Cook the pasta in rapidly boiling salted water until al dente.

In a large sauté pan, warm the olive oil and half of the strawberries over medium heat. Cook until the strawberries start to release juice. Add balsamic and reduce by half.

Add tomato purée, the rest of the strawberries, and the reserved pasta water, and reduce by half again until the sauce thickens. Season to taste.

Toss with spaghetti. Finish with olive oil and some extra strawberries.
