There is a lot of lycopene in the steamed tomatoes. This pigment, a carotenoid, is known for its antioxidant effect in our organism. This means that it acts as a so-called radical scavenger to protect against aggressive oxygen and is therefore also considered to protect against cell degeneration.

If you want to save fat calories, then take sattt ricotta cheese grainy cream cheese of the lean stage. It does not need to be squeezed out and can be spread just as easily on the pasta.
