Classic Summery Pappa al Pomodoro Recipe from Tuscany

Viva la pappa pappa col popopopomodoro, viva la pappa e’ un capopolavoro🎶 🎶...

This is one of those songs that made the history of Italian music, known by all the Italians ever since they were children. It’s something my grandma used to sing to my mom when she was little. A generation later, my mom used to do the same to me, and two generations later I sang it to my kids to encourage them to eat.

Let’s contribute to make this song everlasting: learn the refrain, take the ingredients out of the larder and prepare the Pappaal pomodoro. This peasant recipe has earned a special spot in the Italian cuisine over the years. Originally from Tuscany, it’s known all over the Italian peninsula, thanks to its simplicity. The basic ingredients are only stale bread, ripe tomatoes and garlic. By adding a drizzle of Evo oil, a handful of basil leaves, and a dollop of mozzarella cream, you’ll get a great dish to be served to your kids… humming the Pappa al pomodoro song!
