Ingredients

  • 2 pints grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Pound conchigliette
  • 1 pint chicken stock
  • 1 Pound Yukon Gold potatoes, diced finely
  • 3 Tablespoons finely chopped mint
  • 1/4 Cup grated Grana Padano

Directions

Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, and garlic in a 10-inch fry pan and simmer over low heat until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook the pasta until al dente. At the same time, combine the chicken stock and potatoes in another 10-inch fry pan and cook over high heat until just cooked, about 13-15 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and reserve the chicken stock until the pasta is done. Drain the pasta, and in a large bowl, toss with the tomatoes, potatoes, mint, and cheese, and add the chicken stock as needed to loosen the sauce. 

Conch Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
