Braised tomatoes:

Cut the tomatoes side down and blanch for three minutes, chill tomatoes in ice water and peel them. Cut the garlic cloves into halves. Then place the tomatoes in a roasting pan, add the other ingredients and mix and stir well. Braise tomatoes in the pre-heated oven at 130° for one hour.

For the leek purée boil the green part of the leek in salted water, chill with ice cold water and purée it smoothly. For the pasta dough mix wheat flour and durum wheat flour thoroughly, form a whole in the middle and add egg yolk, salt, olive oil and leek purée. From the inside stir in the flour circularly and knead well for approximately 10 minutes. Let stand for 2-3 hours. Roll out the pasta dough, cut it into ribbon noodles and cook it in salted water for 2-3 minutes. Heat the tomatoes with some oil in a frying pan, add ribbon noodles and garnish with chive, Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese and Speck Alto Adige PGI cubes.
