Recipe Notes

  • Variation: To make this dish without a trip to the fish market, substitute two 6-ounce cans of drained tuna for the cod. Stir it into the tomato sauce and warm for about a minute before tossing it with the pasta.
  • Tips: To peel the fresh tomato quickly, make double use of the pasta-cooking water. Bring a pot of water to a boil, core the tomato, and drop it into the water for fifteen seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove the tomato from the water, peel, and chop it. Then, the boiling water is ready for the pasta.
