Ingredients for the sauce:
500gm large, ripe tomatoes, peeled, de-seeded and diced.
125ml extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped very finely
large handful fresh basil leaves, shredded
3 tbsp chopped fresh oregano or marjoram
salt and pepper
450gm dried conchiglie
Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil and oregano in a bowl that is large enough to eventually accommodate the cooked pasta.
Season generously with salt and pepper. Cover the bowl with Clingfilm and leave to stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until cooked. Drain thoroughly and immediately add to the tomatoes.
Toss well to mix, ready to serve!
As you can see from the pictures, the 1st picture is served with grilled chicken. The 2nd and 3rd pictures, served with prawns and ham.
Note: The skin of the tomatoes can be easily peeled by putting the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water and leave to stand for about 5 to 10 minutes.

They are then put into an oval shaped pressure cooker, which is able to cook about 22 dumplings of average size. (1 kg of glutinous rice)
When the safety (red) button arises, it's time to turn down the fire to low, and continue to boil for about 1 hour.
Turn off the fire after 1 hour, but DO NOT OPEN THE COVER!!! Just leave the cooker as it is until the red button goes down as shown below:
Here goes... yummy yummy savoury dumplings!!
