Buon Giorno, pasta-loving buddies!


Once I journey, I really like exploring eating places all world wide, and I all the time look ahead to sampling their pasta choices. A few of the pasta specialties I attempt are deeply rooted in regional Italian cuisines, and so they usually have colourful fascinating names. Moreover the well-known Puttanesca, Amatriciana, Cacio e Pepe, and Carbonara, it is enjoyable to search out Arrabbiata (which implies “offended” and denotes a spicy sauce), Boscaiola (woodsman-style, often that includes wild mushrooms), or Carrettiera (as delivered by cart drivers—a Sicilian reply to aglio, olio e peperoncino). However the prize for originality goes to the famed Barese (from Bari, Puglia’s capital) specialty: Spaghetti all’Assassina!! Actually, assassin-style spaghetti. It is a killer pasta that may knock you over with its highly effective taste and warmth. Not solely is its identify uncommon, however its preparation goes AGAINST all the things you might have realized about cooking pasta! For starters, the spaghetti is NOT cooked in a pot of boiling water. Reasonably, it is cooked in a manner similar to risotto. First, it is “toasted” in a pan with garlic, oil, chili peppers, and tomato puree. It is then cooked in the identical pan by including small additions of tomato broth till al dente perfection is reached.


The result’s a dish exploding with caramelized tomato taste, spicy chilis, and an irresistible crunchy texture because of the preliminary toasting of the spaghetti.


Barese purists don’t add anything; nonetheless, a sprinkle of chopped Italian parsley and/or of pungent Pecorino Romano can solely add an additional punch to this culinary heaven. Provare per credere!


Buon appetito and Share the Pasta!
