Yield 6 servings


  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can whole tomatoes, undrained
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (8-ounce) package vermicelli, broken into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 eggs, separated

How to Make It

  1. Drain and chop tomatoes, reserving 1/2 cup liquid; set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet; add flour, stirring until smooth. Gradually add reserved tomato liquid; cook over medium heat 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add reserved tomatoes; continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese, and salt and pepper; mix well.

  3. Cook vermicelli according to package directions; drain. Combine tomato mixture and vermicelli, mixing well. Beat egg yolks in a medium mixing bowl until thick and lemon colored. Gradually stir one-fourth vermicelli mixture into yolks; add to remaining mixture, stirring well.
