The yellow datterino is very difficult to source in the US. These tomatoes were a 2014 SOFI awards finalst at the Fancy Food Show. They are hand selected for the Trentasette line and are free of additives, colorings or artificial ingredients. Just fresh picked by hand and bottled naturally sweet yellow datterino tomatoes packed in their own juice. A simple tomato sauce over imported Italian pasta can’t be beat. Try the Filotea egg tagliatelle for a quick week night supper. Or toss with Squid ink linguini and seared scallops for a little more pizzaz.( see recipe ideas below)
Keep several jars on hand for ’emergencies’.
