I also like the look of maltagliati pasta and enjoy using it in a variety of dishes. My favorite is also probably the simplest to make. All you need is about a pound of fresh pasta, cooked al dente and some great homemade sauce.
For the sauce, you'll need three tablespoons of olive oil, one minced scallion, two minced garlic cloves, three chopped tomatoes with the skins and seeds removed, herbs to taste (I prefer parsley and sage, with a bit of thyme thrown in). Finally you'll need robiola cheese for garnish.
To make the sauce, just add the oil to a deep pan, then sauté the garlic and scallions. Put in the tomatoes and herbs.
Add the sauce to your pasta and top with the cheese. It's delicious.
