Gnocchi con spuntature di maiale - gnocchi with pork short rib stew - made by marielle in rome. real comfort food. it’s a classic winter dish but we’d take it any time of year!
A pasta for when you’re not feeling very well. frascarelli is a cross between soup and polenta in texture and is traditionally made for the ill, the elderly and breastfeeding mums. annunziatina made it for us in abruzzo and now you can watch how on our youtube 🥣 🥣 🥣
Carmella making raschiatelli on her gorgeous table.
Throwback to sardinia back in november when we met gilda and erminia who taught us how to make one of the most beautiful pasta shapes - lorighittas. they serve this with a simple chicken ragù: sauté carrot, celery and onion in olive oil. fry a jointed chicken in the same pan until golden then add a bottle of passata, season, simmer for an hour and finish with parsley. you can watch their episode on our youtube channel.
Thank you @food52 for sharing my favourite go-to pasta dish for when there isn’t much in the fridge. tinned chickpeas, dried pasta, rosemary, garlic, olive oil, a knife-tip of cayenne and plenty of cheese. that’s it! find the recipe on their website and try it for dinner tonight.
Pasta con le sarde caltabellotta style, with tomatoes, fennel and breadcrumbs made by rosetta on our most recent episode. she uses a dried pasta called ruvidelli that had a lovely bite to it. a truly delicious lunch alongside their homemade wine.
