Whether you call this tomato consomme, tomato broth, tomato brodo, tomato bouillon it is and will be the most intensely tomato flavoured stuff you have ever tried, obviously I skipped calling it tomato stock as it is not ‘cooked with tomato bones’ so it can’t be a stock
I’m sure there will be some itching to point out that the presence of pasta makes this tuna Nicoise pasta salad a fraud, well so be it. It kinda has the flavours of a Nicoise salad, sans olives of course… I hate olives! Most importantly the presence of pasta makes this dish a perfect picnic recipe,
This ragu sauce is makes the perfect hearty summer pasta if you ask me, and that is the perfect meal after I have spent a day at the grindstone in the garden, particularly as the mercury has now permanently risen!
