Using a knife, grind the tomatoes into small cubes and transfer to a clean plate.

We rinse cilantro and basil under running water, shake off excess liquid by weight and transfer to a cutting board. Finely chop the greens with a knife and transfer to a clean plate.

Serve at the dinner table as the main dish, along with slices of bread and a glass of dry red wine. Attention: side dishes such as a salad of fresh vegetables, mashed potatoes or any kind of cereal to your taste are also suitable.

- Before serving, you can decorate the dish with finely chopped parsley.
- In addition to the spices indicated in the recipe, you can also add any other seasonings to the bird to your taste.
