Dr. Pomponio's Quick Pasta Sauce with Spaghetti

Italia Coppola's cousin, Dr. Pomponia, a doctor who lived in Napoli, always bragged about his tomato sauce. It takes just 15 or 20 minutes to make, he boasted, but no one took him seriously.

Italia's Tomato-Mozzarella Loaf

Be sure to have plenty of napkins on the table, as this rustic loaf must be eaten with your fingers. Use the best in-season tomatoes you can find and if you can pluck them off the vines moments before slicing them, that's just perfect. This rustic loaf is from Mama Coppola's Pasta Book.
