(Pasta Rustica con Mozzarella Affumicata)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
2 packages (about 9 ounces each) dried cheese tortellini

6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced crosswise
1 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
2 garlic cloves, minced
2/3 cup vermouth

1 lb smoked mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
 
Directions:
 
Cook tortellini in large pot of boiling salted water until 'al dente', stirring occasionally.

Drain well.

Heat olive oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add onion; increase heat to high and saute until onion is beginning to brown, about 6 minutes.

Stir in garlic; cook 2 minutes.

Add vermouth, then parsley, basil, olives, and oregano.

Cook 4 minutes, stirring often.
