Saveur Sedanoe Pomodori Brasati (Braised Celery and Tomato)
This recipe has 7 ingredients. It serves 4-6 people and takes approximately 2 hours to prep and cook. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients, they were all very basic. I did have to use sliced pancetta, since that was the only type available at my local grocery store. Additionally, I found that my total cook time took longer than the suggested 1 1/2 hours, I allowed the celery to cook for closer to 2 hours. I followed the remainder of the recipe as stated.
I was pleased with how easy this recipe was and how great the taste turned out. I had never tried braising celery before and I liked how sweet the celery was at the end of the cooking time. To save money bacon would work more than adequately in this recipe, especially if pancetta is unavailable at your local grocery store. This recipe is a great way to use celery, especially given how inexpensive the vegetable can be. A great vegetable side dish recipe, that takes minimal effort to prepare.
