 NOTE: Romans prefer canned tomatoes when fresh tomatoes are out of season and
flavorless. When tomatoes are in season, substitute an equivalent amount for the
canned tomatoes. A true Roman chooses spaghetti or rigatoni shapes of pasta.
Small children are served farfalla (bow- or butterfly-shaped) pasta.
